Magic Marker Monday: Pimp My Rack

Our neighborhood recently won an energy grant. While some of the money went to weatherproof homes, our neighborhood association, in keeping with our art theme, had 7 bicycle racks made for the the most frequented locations in the 'hood. Each were designed by artists and then painted at a special public event called, Pimp My Rack.




Everyone was asked to help paint this dog, a bicycle rack doing to, what elese, but our local dog bar. This artist used stippling, basically using special brushes to paint dots all over the sculpture. Many kids added their mark.

Our local coffeeshop, Smelly Cat, will boast this very cool cat.

  1. What fun! That's so great that they let the kids help out too -- I think the dog is my favorite! :)
