Last Sunday I went to a farmers’ market in SOMA, a neighborhood in Little Rock. The market was small by Chicago standards, about 10 vendors selling fruit, vegetables, honey and jewelry. The location was in a interesting small sculpture park called Bernice Garden. The unexpected art was on the street. Little Rock has a sewer beautification project, and there are painted sewers sprinkled in many neighborhoods.
The sewer paintings were designed and painted by students. All of the say “Drains to Fourche Creek. All the paintings have a water theme, some are signed and dated by the artists.
