Makin the Gritty Pretty! (Sunday Snapshot #5)

I thought this art installation was too inspiring not to share!

Adding colorful pieces of fabric where dirt should be...why not?!? That is exactly what Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to do. She thought the streets of Paris were too gloomy so she decorated the city potholes with colorful strips of fabric! These were placed randomly in shallow breaks and cracks, creating a fun & colorful change in the landscape. The artist’s visual intervention brings a happy touch to the gray streets of Paris & creates a appealing contrast with the dark cement.
