Daddies Ketchup By Paul McCarthy

Sometimes a ketchup bottle is just a ketchup bottle. Though with Paul McCarthy, you can never be sure if this is one of those times.

Still, congratulations to the Public Art Fund for erecting this awesome inflatable Daddie's Ketchup in City Hall Park as part of their Common Ground summer exhibition, which explores, among other things, the "incorporation of language, symbolism and metaphor" in public art, and which opens this evening.
