Traveling Thursday: Making Ugly to Beautiful

I love the idea of making potholes and bare old buildings into art. I have found several examples from bloggers and the web shown below!

juliana santacruz herrera posted these amazing photographs on flickr. Such a beautiful idea. 

























I found this pothole garden at A Cup Of Jo. The artist was Pete Dungey from Britain. Pretty!























Sequin Graffiti covers the walls in Iceland from the amazing artist, Theresa Himmer. I would not mind looking at these in the US.


























I would love to hear what you all think about these pieces. Do or don't?
