John Fekner and Don Leicht
For over four decades, John Fekner's street interventions has been involved with the general public, being among the first to expand the arts outside the walls of museums and galleries.
In 1979, Fekner's shipping crate to an exhibition in Sweden became a temporary playhouse in the street for the local kids, with the crate eventually finding a home in the Museum of Sketches Archives of Public Art in Lund. A few of Don Leicht's earliest street work were his "Bird Feeders" installed in abandoned lots in the South Bronx and his free "Lunch Money" trays which included a participatory donation to a children's charity of one's own choice.
