Arturo Di Modica, Sculptor Of New York’s Charging Bull Sculpture, Has Died At 80

Di Modica was a “Sicilian-born sculptor best known for Charging Bull, 3.5 tons of bronze belligerence that he illegally deposited in Lower Manhattan one night in 1989.” But this wasn’t the first time he pulled such a stunt. Disappointed by a lack of interest in his first solo show in 1977, “Mr. Di Modica rented three trucks, and he and a group of friends drove eight of his enormous sculptures uptown to Rockefeller Center, where they deposited them in the dead of night. He was ordered to pay a s...

On Bullshit

Philosopher Harry Frankfurt first published "On Bullshit" in the Raritan Quarterly Review in 1986, and it appeared again two years later in a collection of his essays, The Importance of What We Care About. And then it sat quietly for 17 years before Princeton University Press brought it out in a slender, stand-alone volume that became an unexpected best-seller. While "On Bullshit" certainly felt timely in 2005 (and, presumably, to the handful of people who first read it in the '80s), it's gro...

Fragile Man-Baby Places Pissing Dog Sculpture Next To The Empowering Fearless Girl Statue In Manhattan

Men are so damn fragile. An angry sculptor has added a statue of a dog taking a leak on the Fearless Girl statue in Manhattan. Called Pissing Pug, the sculpture is meant as a takedown of Kristen Visbal's fierce AF work, which many find so empowering and necessary.

Artist Protests 'Fearless Girl' By Installing Urinating Dog At Her Feet

The “Fearless Girl” statue ―-  the one installed adjacent Wall Street’s charging bull during this year’s Women’s History Month ― has a new decrier. Sculptor Alex Gardega told The New York Post that the proud, gangly young woman “is corporate nonsense.” “It has nothing to do with feminism,” the artist went on. “And it is a disrespect to the artist that made the bull. That bull had integrity.” To protest, Gardega put up a work of his own: a shoe-sized pug urinating at the girl’s ankl...

This column originally appeared in Emily Peck’s newsletter, a weekly email that looks at the convergence of women, economics, business and politics. Sign up here.  Look, it’s obviously the height of absurdity to be afraid of little girls. Yet, here we are.

Sculptor Of Wall Street's Charging Bull Says Fearless Girl Is Ruining His Art!

On International Women's Day last month, a sculpture of a Fearless Girl was installed in front of New York City's iconic Charging Bull on Wall Street. This defiant little bronze statue was temporarily installed as a symbol of equality and pressure for big investment firms to add more women to their boards. And just like the women she represents, Fearless Girl is already having to deal with some serious patriarchal bull. Related: Fearless Girl Vandalized To Look Like Trump Supporter! Specifically...
