Spotted: Pothole Warnings
Initially posted on Torontoist: http://torontoist.com/2013/05/spotted-pothole-warnings/
SPOTTED BY: Martin Reis
WHERE: Mostly in the Dovercourt Road area, around Queen Street West
WHEN: Over the past few weeks
WHAT: These handy, comic-book-style pothole warnings were spray-painted on west-end streets by the Urban Repair Squad, a group of pro-bicycle street-art vigilantes, whose work we’ve seen many times before. The idea here is to alert cyclists to dangerous road conditions, while also, presumably, letting City Hall know that its pothole crews have missed a few spots. The URS did this exact same thing at least once before, in 2010.

Waking up to this wonderful news was simply best. Play the Walk is recognized by the Grow Op Jury and its sponsors (DTAH, The Planning Partnership, PMA, Brook McIlroy and Claude Cormier + Associes) for a unique work that encourages us all to celebrate and explore new dialogues about landscape, art, gardens and our city.
Magic happens when Lemon Bucket Orchestra meet The Calypso Ensemble in the Triangle courtyard on Saturday April 27!
It was sunny and wonderful to parade through the neighbourhood with Tangi of Lemon Bucket Orchestra and his crew. On the other side of the Triangle, Calypso band members celebrating their re-union after 13 years, and when they meet in the courtyard for the first time, Lemons invited Calypso for a magical improv surrounded by friendly neighbours peeking their heads out to feel the rhythm, and play along with us. Triangle you’ve been a wonderful player!
