    is this environmentally friendly?? little animals end up eating it and could die from it. i was also hoping to see the residuals at the bottom get cleaned up but the crap was left over. let me egg your house and call it art and leave you the stench of rotten eggs…

      Well for starters, it’s not anyone’s house. It’s in an alley in front of a parking garage. As far as these poor little animals, if they can eat pieces of broken glass, cigarette butts, and gum and be fine, a little glitter won’t kill them. The city has a lot of litter, maybe you’ve noticed. This however, is a least a little colorful.

    If you clean up the glitter at the bottom it would add to the mystique , and just look better . I hear what your saying about the city already being a shit hole but there’s no need to add to it!!

    this is an example of how color, cheer and creativity are polluting our otherwise pristine city of trash!

    I happen to like the glitter gathering at the bottom, its like they are led sticks being rooted into the ground.

    Whether the glitter was left at the bottom of the pole or swept up and thrown into a dumpster-then moved to a landfill where “little critters” could still eat it and die, I don’t really see the difference. Why not just take this piece of colorful, creative, cheerfull art for what it is, and stop looking at it in a negative light. I love the way it turned out, and hopefully it lasts a long time!

    this is perfect, iconic and simple, so everyone srsly, shut up and enjoy it. litter is just one letter away from glitter- IRONIC? naaaah probably not ;)
    keep rocking it conrad.

    The glitter at the bottom I would assume is stuck to the concrete as the rest is stuck to the pole. The glue probably hit that area as well. This is genius and Philly is seriously non-stop with the creative. So glad to call this my home. Keep up the amazing work!!

    I saw dudes to tags with spray glue and throw glitter at the wall it wasn’t as effective as this! I’d really love to see some fire hydrandts and mail boxes done the same!

    This is awesome! And the glitter on the ground… it makes it look like the pole was jammed into the ground with little bits getting shaved off in the process..

    Seriously? I love animals. SO MUCH. But yeah the animals have a lot more to worry about on Philly streets besides glitter. Really doubt they’ll be having issues with licking glitter off of posts…..they’re curious, but not brain dead..
