Before I die I want to... be part of an international art project.
OK quick recap: Artful Dodgy is taking part in international public art project Ear and There. Ear and There is an anonymous crowdsourced Street Art project that surfaced over a year ago. The basic concept is moulded ears that are surreptitiously placed in public spaces all over the world. The organization currently has 461 ears in 54 countries, and I was mailed three of these "souvenears" back in March.
Almost four months later and I placed one while on a trip to Porthcothan bay in Cornwall, England. And another four months later I have finally placed the FIRST EAR IN HOUSTON EVER! If you are in the area (and it hasn't already been taken down by the fun police), then you can see it for yourself at Bagby Park in Midtown (29°45'07.2"N 95°22'34.4"W). As always photo credit goes to the wonderful Adam Foret Photography.
If you would like to place your own ear, request an ear to be sent to you through Ear and There's website. Easy peasy. Stay tuned for my next ear!
