Signed Edition of 100

Robert Lynn Green Sr., a resident of the Lower Ninth Ward, holds a sign created by Paul Chan that reflects the first three lines of Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot." These signs could be found posted on lampposts throughout New Orleans, alerting residents of the play's performances in the Lower Ninth Ward and Gentilly neighborhoods.
After a while the signs came to feel like a shared secret, or some bounteous but anonymous civic gift, the way Keith Haring's subway paintings felt in New York in the early 1980s. They added up to a visual network, art as a connective tissue for a torn-apart town. - Holland Cotter, The New York Times
