This sign, from a hotel in Hadley Massachusetts, was equidistant from a bathroom, a lobby, an elevator, a small pet-sitting area, and a utility closet. It also does not specify what the seven stands for--trash cans? Guests? Employees? Pets? Enjoy!!

Though taking a much more brusque approach and obviously not located in as idyllic a setting as my submission to this collection back in 2011, I'm quite pleased to see the progress that New England has made in addressing the critical social-existential issues that Finland was thinking about back then. This marks a very refreshing shift in priorities from the endless sign-chatter about parking which can probably be attributed to Boston having its first new mayor in a generation.

1. This is a personal sign for me.  Even though I closed the gallery that I loved to have a baby--my dream of being an artist is still alive.

2. This is about being a Mom and an artist which can be a difficult combination.

1. from park along the Emscher River In Germany (Where Emscherkunst art show was) in a post-industrial area near Essen (amazing cultural corridor at this point). Sign by the canal, full of really nasty oily sludgy water that smelled not just foul, but chemically foul. I believe the sign said something about certain death after a while. Obviously nothing good came of this canal and it's contents.

Lebensgefahr-"Danger to Life"

2. Extra Breed-sign at Albert Heijn grocery store in the Netherlands, I know what it means, but I like to think it's telling people to have more children

3. Amerika = potato chips (Bratislava, Slovakia)

1. Dogtime
Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam
Someone said it referred to their continuing ed program, but all I could think of was MC Hammer's "hammer time" danced by dogs. In MC Hammer pants. Going up and down the stairs.

2. Fuck You-in pink spray paint, in a lovely font, on the reflective surface of a boutique in Paris around the corner from Notre Dame. THe nicest "fuck you" I have ever received.

3. "I make Monet Like CLaude Money"
Paris, Clingincourt Flea Market. Capitalistic graffiti with an art historical reference, nicely played
