This is awesome. Vancouver’s Guelph Park is now Dude Chilling Park. Not officially though, The Province reports that the official park sign was secretly replaced by someone “who put a lot of effort into crafting the counterfeit, which even features the official Vancouver Parks and Recreation crest”.

The artist responsible is Viktor Briestensky. I really hope they don’t remove it like they say they will. It is harmless and hilarious.

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.
