On my way to work this morning, I was surprised to find bunch of super-sized Hershey's Kisses planted in the middle of Houston Street. Some clever artist had covered the iron bells in the median (meant to serve as car-blockers for pedestrians) in shiny, alumnium foil and even put cute, little messages on paper sticking out them.
Some instant Internet research revealed that it's the work of artist Richard Velleso, under the guise of his artists'-alter-ego OlgaLovesNYC. The Bowery Boogie blog has a cool video about the making of the kisses. It's a lovely visual treat for this Valentines Day weekend!
