Quick! Cover That Scaffolding With Art!

Photo by ArtBridgeArtBridge is a nonprofit that “beautifies neighborhoods and communities by transforming overhead construction scaffolding into larger-than-life canvas for the work of local emerging artists.” I love it. Scaffolding is everywhere, and it’s such an eyesore – what a creative solution. And it gets better: New York Magazine reports that “After the works come down next November, they’ll be made into one-of-a-kind tote bags by the nonprofit group Urban Samaritan, which teaches job skills to the city’s homeless.”

Read a write-up of ArtBridge from this week’s issue of New York Magazine.
