The Maximum Occupancy Sign:

Among the prints is a mandatory sign, establishing the occupancy. While
perhaps a necessary requirement, the sign is unbefitting for the room in
several key ways. For one, the actual number of occupants is random. What
is the point of having 300 and 1 people in the room? Furthermore, for a
room of its size, 301 is an excessive number. Though if empty the number
would be appropriate, the room is filled with artwork, which would be
completely obscured in a filled room. Secondly, the work is bland, and
unbefitting of the room itself. It is however, a necessary piece of work,
and thus font and color reflect this, giving it the character that such a
sign deserves.
