The Wall Street Journal has a slide show on Michael and Seren Shvo’s art collection in their two homes in Manhattan and the Hamptons. But the story offers a reminder of Shvo’s use of a property he bought in Chelsea a few years ago and created an installation before development began:
An old Getty gas station in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood brought Mr. Shvo back into the business in 2013 where he staged a public art exhibit called ‘Sheep Station.’ Under the awning covering inoperable gas pumps, rolling hills of real sod were laid for 25 epoxy stone and bronze sheep created by the late artist François-Xavier Lalanne. Mr. Shvo bought the lot for $23.5 million. It is now the construction site of a 16-unit, 47,000-square-foot luxury condo building developed with Moshe Shuster’s Victor Group and designed by architect Peter Marino.
