Jorge Pino of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told CNN that for his agency “it would be highly unlikely that we would cite this young man for anything.” The agency “would probably write him a warning and make sure that he understands that that could be construed as littering, obviously. It’s not the right thing to do.”
Pino added, “It’s in his best interest to drive the same boat that he drove out there before and load that damn thing onto his boat and bring it back to his garage.”
“The kid seems to be just an ‘artiste,'” Pino said. “One man’s art is another man’s trash.”
The piano caught worldwide attention, with its perch on the sandbar quickly being dubbed a “piano bar.”
Well, as a prank it’s fairly harmless. As to it being “art” – it is better than some of what is being passed off as art these days – by a large margin, but not in a class with, say, Rodin.
At all. Not even close.
Son, can you play me a publicity stunt?
