I really do just absolutely love urban art experiments. It says a lot about a city and a community when, dispite all the negativity and uncertainty, they still find a way to allow people to be playful and inspiring.
Sometimes little things can make people think about the bigger issues, and we think artist Sean Martindale’s recent project ‘Outside the Planter‘ displays this sentiment pretty well. Martindale called out to local artists, designers and gardeners and asked them to pay some attention to their neglected local street planters and revitalize them with their own unique installation. What resulted was a range of fun and thoughtful Outside the Planter interventions that collectively formed 30 citywide installations in a 24-hour period. Each planter box seems to call out to people in a different way, and asks them to reconsider their everyday environments, if even only a little.
