First, a glitter bomb in the Gayborhood, now Northern Liberties gets some color!
The really cool thing about this bomb though, is that it’s on a door facing a street light. So, it lights up at night!

And during the day…
You post a lot about your involvement in some of these pieces on your blog along with other people’s full names. Does no one that you write about under stand that 90% of street art is illegal and that repercussions do exist? That things like wheat pasting a postal mail box can be a felony charge and glitter bombing a privately owned door can have an owner quite mad and willing to press charges? I’m not saying don’t do it I advocate all forms of street art to their fullest but it seems like your sight may need a little more discretion as to how much information it gives! Just my 2¢
Completely valid point. Although I can’t stress enough that I never have, and never would, put up an artist’s name, or link to their website, if I didn’t get their approval first. This is especially true when I tag along with a artist as they install new work.
The mail box thing that you talk about is Joe B., and when I asked him if I should block his face or not use his name he laughed. He’s been doing this for 10+ years and he’s never got so much as a fine. Just recently, in fact, he got interviewed by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Jessie Hemmon’s too, yarn bombed her way to a New York Times interview.
I realize not every artist is this comfortable being so open. And I think I do a more than fair job of respecting that.
I completely understand where you’re coming from though. Thanks for your thoughts.
I really think this glitter bombing is ridiculous.Glitter is like herpes. For street “artists”, you should think of something a bit more clever and less obnoxious
