The pavilion entrance, Femia, 10/20/08

There's just no room in this economy for orbs of insanity. The Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion, that handbag-inspired traveling exhibition that touched down briefly in Central Park this fall, will be spinning the globe no more. Chanel still isn't sure what to do with the structure—it packs up into 51 shipping containers, but storing those until the economy rights itself in 2015 seems a touch impractical.
