Update: We’ve updated this post with details about our event and contest prizes.
There it was, blocks from the Pacific Ocean in Ocean Beach. I had found a crack in a sidewalk on Bacon Street shaped like a heart. It even had been shaded pink. I snapped a photo and posted it on The Stumblr, our blog depicting San Diego’s shoddy sidewalks.
The sidewalk heart got me thinking about art. Photographers and other artists have staged scenes made out of potholes in New York, Los Angeles and Canada, wrapped colors around sidewalks and drain pipes and turned spooky sewers into spooky pictures.
When I look at the jagged lines and contrasting colors on many of our Stumblr photos, I see the same possibilities for an art project.
And I’m hoping you do, too.
