@TheShgn2: a)to reach more people, 20% of the globe speaks English to some level of competence.
b) only 22 million people speak Dutch, see point a.

so basically what phil7243 said (just read your post, phil ;-) )

Why would Amsterdam not have pennies? The Euro, which they use, still has coins including 1 and 2 cent coins, which are copper.

Most Dutch people speak English, not many non-Dutch people speak Dutch.

It`s just about reaching a wider audience, if it was in Dutch I guarantee it wouldn`t have made it on to this site.

So, what would qualify as art?

This person invested a lot of time and imagination into sending a message in a visually striking way. If this doesn`t qualify as art, then pretty much nothing ever made by human hands does.

Cool design, wonder if they glued all the pennies to the floor for an extra, haha

But more importantly, how many pennies did he accidentally glue to himself when he made this?

Looks great! Need some close-ups to fully appreciate it I`d say.

It`s funny too, obsession with glueing things to the sidewalk?
