a few photos from a small public art piece i’ve been working on this semester. letters to a neighborhood, from the people who used to live there. i’ve been spying out my window all morning, trying to catch glimpses of people as they read. so far, lots of smiles.
such a great idea!
Oh, this is such a wonderful idea! Now I wish I lived in that neighborhood!
what a cool project.
I hope you get to see more smiles!
That is so cool! I would love to find something like this.
i love it. wish i could find something like this. i bet it makes a person's day.
how incredible!!! i love it!!!
srsly great stuff. What an amazing way to spread the love.
Now, isn't this clever! I love that you're able to partake in their discovery, too!
What a beautiful idea! 🙂
fascinating! real people? where did you find the names of residents from years ago? ancestry.com? phone book? I love it. My two loves, textiles and people history. the flowers would have been lovely as well, but this is fabulous!!!
sounds wonderful and love that you can play eye spy, too!
That is so lovely! I only wish I could stumble upon one of these little letters.
Agree with everyone. It's perfect – especially in a town with a past.
Uh, so we're totally neighbors. I'm 154 Transit. 😛 Are they still up? We'll have to take a looksie in the morning.
WAAAAH? i hope they are! there's one at 160 and one at 174! let's get tea sometime after the 17th….
Yes! I would love that! Except after the 20th because I'll be in Vermont that weekend. 🙂 So excited to get to see your project in person! The world is so small sometimes…
This is so cool!! Will you share more about it!?
That is so cool! 🙂
What a beautiful idea.

How fun! I used to live over there and all the houses I lived in have such history!
This project sounds so interesting – I'd love to hear more about it!

i saw one! … but thought it was part of a scavenger hunt… so i didnt want to mess with them (sad face)… i did smile though.
How wonderful! We used to live nearby, on the corner of gano and waterman and I wish we had people like you as neighbors.
