The first major exhibit of the street artist Alec Monopoly opened Thursday in New York, taking over a corner storefront in Chelsea, at 22nd Street and 8th Ave., and will be free and open to the public for the next week.

Despite the fact that news crews from CBS and CNN taped Rove being served, neither have reported it or aired the footage.
