Jim Bachor is making a functional and artistic statement by filling in potholes on Chicago streets with one-of-a-kind mosaics. Inspired by ancient art styles in Italy, he has filled about seven potholes. He says the mosaics are, "Meant more as a sense of civic pride than a form of complaint against the city, as the potholes are an inevitable part of living in Chicago." They aren't meant to be a permanent fix, but have surely inspire a lot of smiles around the city this spring!

Man-eater by Daniel Disselkoen. For four years, each day I took the same tram to art academy. Why would you then look out the window with curiosity when there is no reason to expect anything new. I decided to change the daily journey for my fellow passengers and myself. I wouldn't move the tramway track, but maybe I could add something. Make something so that what already exists would look very different now.
