I posted this on the Medill Blog…

Yesterday, I went out with a Reuters camera crew to cover this story….

This is hard-hitting journalism….ala Dan Rather…or something…

An American Artist piled up 30,000 bananas in Trafalgar Square….this is outside of the National Gallery….he claimed it was art….Reuters and other british broadcasters thought it was news…

He’s done this exhibition in Ecuador and New York.

Here’s a reporter for the Children’s BBC…he tried starting up his own sculpture of oranges.

There was a gorrilla attack on the art exhibit. The artist was upset after that.

Reuters also got crowd reactions to the art exhibit. The artist gave away all the bananas in the afternoon. This kid was happy because he said he was hungry and he liked bananas.
