Colorful Commotion

read
In Berlin, a guerrilla 'street art' project makes unwilling artists out of cars.

Late in April, on a clear and sunny afternoon in Berlin, a group of cyclists dumped 13 gallons of non-toxic, water soluble paint in a busy city intersection. When cars drove through the intersection, their wheels became paintbrushes, creating a colorful public art piece on the streets.
