Last night we heard that there were some University of Arkansas art students working on an installation project for College Avenue this morning.
The details were sketchy, and I’d kind-of forgotten about that in my groggy, tired state driving to work today.
That is, until driving past Rick’s Bakery at around 8:00 am, I saw a sign with an illustration of a mans face with the words “Love Yourself” on it. Huh?
The signs, at least as far as I could tell are all south facing, meeting northbound traffic on College avenue. I counted and photographed 12 unique designs on my way to work this morning, though there may be more that I may have missed. The installation went up beginning at 6:00 am, and most of the signs were still standing at 8:00 when I saw them.
Did anyone else see them? Did it freak you out? Below is a slideshow of the pictures I took today. Anyone have any more information?
UPDATE: “The art is the work of University of Arkansas art students,” says The Morning News.
