Art is not a club! Why limit the reach of Michelangelo’s David — one of the most famous sculptures of all time — to a costly trip to Florence, Italy, when there are the marvelous mazes of a New York City subway station, easily accessible by way of a $2.75 fare.

So our art critic, Jerry Saltz, took a replica of David underground, in the hopes of learning what New Yorkers make of David and also help them understand the work. Do you need to be an art bigwig to know or care? What is he holding? Why is he naked! Their responses did not disappoint.
