jim bachor's "Treats in the Streets"

Potholes cover cities creating eyesores that no one wants to look at. However, artist Jim Bachor knows that everyone loves ice cream, and would have no problem looking at sweet treats all day long! Bachor has a goal to fix potholes, while bringing life and color to cities at the same time. He has covered potholes with a variety of mosaic artworks including flowers and beautiful patterns, but his ice cream mosaics have definitely been the sweetest! He calls his series of 10 ice cream mosaics “Treats in the Streets.”  His work can be seen in cities all over the world from Chicago to Jyväskylä, Finland. Keep on the lookout for some sweet art in unexpected places during your travels! Sometimes beauty is in the most unexpected places.
