Came across this interesting street art during my daily perusal of the art blogs - Street artist Bored, based in Chicago, took to the streets and turned them into a real life monopoly board.  Once tracked down the street artists explained that “the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”

We are definitely fans of street art that pushes the boundaries in this way - who said it had to be a spray paint mural on the side of a building anyway? The emergence of more and more 3-D based art in cities is really exciting, and of course we here at Junk Food have a special place in our hearts for Monopoly, so this really hits the spot!!
