Wordful Wednesday - Guerilla Art

My favorite big city is Chicago.  It's big buildings, stores, museums, restaurants, and great public art displays make the city an exciting place to visit.

But what I find really fun is finding displays of guerilla art.

"Killing People is Rude."
Yes, it is!

I've never seen that and have no clue about guerrilla art. Interesting! I'll have to keep my eyes open next time I'm there!

Now that is interesting : ).

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL...you'd think it would just be common sense...but it never hurts to remind people!

jenn said...

Elaine A. said...

Well, that's one way to put it!

Interesting concept, guerrilla art. Never heard that term before...

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

Lindsay said...

That's so interesting to hear you say that about Chicago. My hubs was just there and didn't have very nice things to say about it. I still want to visit though - it can't be THAT bad, I mean come on - Oprah broadcasts from there! LOL :-)

scrappysue said...

LOVE. THAT.

BoufMom9 said...

Where did you find that? How interestingly odd. LOL

Happy WW!

Simply AnonyMom said...

What a great "find"

I have seen a piece or two in Seattle, but I hear it is more prolific in NYC and Chicago.

Carebear said...

Love it! Great eye to spot that and quick thinking to put it on "film" so to speak (what are we supposed to say now that it's digital?!)

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

Gorilla ART??

I love the whole murals on the side of buildings that make you wonder.. was that supposed to be there??

and oh how I'm dying to goto Chicago.. I sooo want to see la grande jatte in the art museum there!!

Kimber said...

I love Chicago too. It's been just over a year since we went, but even though it was -10 degrees while we were there it was still such fun. This summer we're trying out NYC.

Mandy said...

I would say so, too. :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Hmmmm....at least it's sending a message. I have family out in Chicago and the last time I was there was in my 20's when I drove there with a best friend from NY. Good times.

Chicago is the best city ever! I'm glad we live so close to it. And yes, I completely agree. Killing people is very rude!

Pamela said...

Fantastic photo! Oh, I'd love to visit Chicago. I've never been there and I'm just a hop, skip and a jump away! (MN)

Your blog is such fun!

Susie said...

That's an understatement!

Wifey Dessert said...

Jen said...

Well, they do have a point.

Sarah said...

I have to agree, quite rude!

Halftime Lessons said...

Wow...that photo is....dark!! Bet seeing something like that is interesting....and maybe a tad depressing?
;-)

jori-o said...

Do you have more examples? That is fascinating!

The Blonde Duck said...

That's an understatement. :)

angie said...

Love it. I never thought of killing in quite those terms. :)

Debbie said...

I think it is the height of insult!

Keri said...

I couldn't agree more. How rude!

Jenni Jiggety said...

It IS rude! And mean!

That's cool, Michelle!

Jenners said...

The black and white so suits this image! I love the grittiness to it. And what a good sentiment.

Lindsay said...

Awesome picture! I love the unexpected things that pop up begging to have their picture taken.

Chicago is on my list of places to visit. I've never been, and it looks so interesting. I don't know if in my head anything will to NYC. That place was like magic to me when I went seven years ago.
