Signed Print For Sale

You can buy this photograph of a rather impressive art project, that stood in Harlem in 1987. It was called “Higher Goals” and it was taller than the surrounding tenements. They took a couple of telephone poles and bolted them together. Its message was that kids should have higher goals than playing for the NBA, since the odds of that happening were as unlikely as hitting Lotto…

Hopefully the odds that I sell a print are slightly better!

Signed 8.5×11″ prints can be yours for only $80

86th St. & Broadway 1988

Michael, the guy with the broom was mute and probably deaf. He spent his entire day cleaning up our block. Nary a cigarette butt did he fail to pick up. A gentle man who had a very simple existence…©Matt Weber86-michael-checker-1988-copy
