A Step in the Right Direction (1965) is Cenedella's 10.5 Wide footprint. He stepped in black paint and placed his foot right on the canvas to exhibit his newest piece of artwork at his "Yes Art!" exhibition.
"Yes Art!" was Cenedella's farewell to art when he decided to join an advertising agency to escape the commercialism of the art world. Predicting that this gimmick-filled show would draw more attention than any other show that year, "Yes Art!" was exhibited in 1965 at the Fitzgerald Gallery. A wildly successful satirical gesture as well as a critical analysis of Pop Art and the marketing hype that made it popular, "Yes Art!" was subsequently taken seriously and imitated by many artists, yet without the humor and commentary present in Cenedella's work.
