Art I like No.12 or Pisses on Banksy

Go check out this excellent community based mural project in Philadelphia USA, by artist Stephen powers, the project is called Love Letter, and if you go to the site you can download a map of all the various locations and with the power of google and handheld navigation devices, you can literally stand in the exact viewing location as prescribed by the artist.

I may have got a bit carried away and made that last bit up, but it does contain a list of local businesses along the route which it encourages art patrons to visit.

Talk about using art to inject life back into a community, positive gentrification……… What next !
