“My little way of beautifying the city of Chicago, one pothole at a time.”
Jim Bachor speaking at the end of the video found in this Chicago Tribune article.
Potholes are places of destruction—both previous destruction (the road) and potential destruction (your car). Yet artist Jim Bachor has turned them into spots of whimsy and potential joy.
See Jim Bachor’s website for a gallery of his pothole installations and more information on his artwork.
