NYC Gas Station Becomes Meadow With Sheep


Sheep Station is an art installation in New York City’s Chelsea district that converted the freshly closed Getty pump gas station to rolling hills of green grass and sheep. The installation was established by┬áreal estate developer and art collector Michael Shvo as a temporary stage until Shvo’s Victor Homes will begin construction on a new luxury apartment building in it’s place. With the help of Paul Kasmin, Shvo provides the twenty-five bronze and stone sheep from the late Francois-Xavier Lalanne. The group is using the Twitter hashtag #gettystation as a central location for updates and information.
