    The OY/YO Socks are based on artist Deborah Kass’s vibrant yellow OY/YO sculpture. One sock says OY on both sides of the calf, the other says YO. The sculpture, which seeks to evoke joy and unity in its playful monumentalizing of classic New York slang, is included in the collection of the Jewish Museum. The work uses the city’s culturally specific, yet universal lingo to communicate the collective pride and exasperation of living here with the twinned words oy (a Yiddish exclamation of alarm or bother) and yo (an omnipresent New York greeting). Originally installed for a limited time in Brooklyn Bridge Park, OY/YO became an instant New York icon and photo op for tourists and residents of all backgrounds.
