Heartbombing

Macon, Georgia has a high number of buildings that have been abandoned and left looking for love. I painted hearts on some of these houses in the Pleasant Hill neighborhood, creating a visual reminder that these houses are loved and still filled with potential. Some of these hearts were even turned into larger messages by local artist Rudy Mendes that read “I [heart] Pleasant Hill.” This is the power of lightweight art in public space; it is approachable so everyone is able to engage with it and co-create their public spaces and their city.
