Chicago is best known for terrible weather, disgusting pizza, and, now, enormous, flower-filled potholes by Bachor.

The city of Chicago is best known for its terrible weather, inferior pizza, and, now, enormous potholes. Local guerrilla artist Jim Bachor has begun filling some of the city’s gaping road holes with mosaic flowers in an attempt to draw attention to the problem.

If you’re in Chicago and want to see can see Bachor’s art in person, he keeps a list of the locations of his street art on his website, and a new exhibition featuring his mosaic works called “Jentaculum” opened in early November, 2014 at The Packet Schopf Gallery.
