Day 42/100

Heights Arts

The first time I drove by this public art installation I think I almost crashed from staring too long. What looked like a row of blooming trees along a construction fence was actually a .2 mile long recycled arts project. Next time you drive by, try to catch the hundreds of shiny soda can bottoms and clumps of plastic bags along Cedar just in front of the Whole Foods shopping center. Here’s the official description:

“Fencepiration is a Heights Arts public art project with artists Carol Hummel and Debbie Apple Presser to transform a utilitarian construction fence on Cedar Road between Fenwick and Warrensville into an inspiring and attractive streetscape element for the duration of the construction project using recycled materials including aluminum cans, plastic milk jugs and plastic bags.”
