Last summer a group of Austin-based artists started Cracks in the Pavement, a project wherein artists place works randomly in urban environments. The artworks may be kept by whomever finds them, and works not found are allowed to remain in the landscape indefinitely “to be encountered by chance, displaced, or transformed by the very environmental forces that define each piece’s context.” This summer the program is back, and is all over the United States, and even in Australia and Germany! Pretty impressive one-year growth for an outstanding and innovative project!!!
