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

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

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

    A curiosity perhaps, but not art.

    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.

    Huh? "but what the hell would this many pennies be doing in Amsterdam?" They are probably Euro 1 Cent coins???

    ...and the artist has a cup into which passers-by throw pieces of chalk.

    Why is this written in English if it`s in Amsterdam?

    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.

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

    @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 ;-) )
