The Bronze Age.

Alright, so this ARTIST named Tom Sachs made just about the most perfect quarterpipes ever. The problem (there always has to be one, right?) is that they are located within a gallery space of a Park Avenue office building in midtown Manhattan. Furthermore, they are "ART" and made out of bronze. Sachs himself said, “If it’s made in bronze, it’s no longer this menacing object of noise and liability but now something that has to be protected.” What the hell does that even mean? "menacing object of noise and liability......" Statements like that lead me to believe dude has never touched a skateboard.
