  • Inspired by contributions in the travel guide, we got a picture of the project on site.

  • This seems like a great way for a neighborhood to reclaim its "junk" and manufacture it into art. The woman at the Yellow House is quite fun to talk to and the stuff is certainly interesting to look at. We spent a total of, maybe, 30 minutes here.
