"A sticker labels this pole at College Avenue and Oneida Street in downtown Appleton as "art object $100.00." The stickers mysteriously appeared throughout the business district. Post-Crescent photo by M.P. King"
"No one knows where the dots came from, said Benjamin Shahin...'They are everywhere downtown. You'll see light poles valued at $1,' Shahin said... The stickers suggest a notion by the late French artist Marcel Duchamp of "ready-made" art: that an artist can elevate an ordinary object to the status of art simply by designating it as such, he said."
