Pick Up the Phone: Bored Street Art Installation, Logan Square

Spotted this near Dunlays and (what used to be the location for) Barbara & Barbara. Liz and I must have missed this on our way to Lula Cafe for breakfast, but spotted it as we were walking back home.

Of course, it was irresistible and I had to pick up the phone for a listen. What I heard was an endless loop of Whoomp! There It Is, playing over and over again.

Near the bottom of the piece, there’s a phone number: 773.669.8873. I’m going to leave it a mystery, and let you find out on your own what happens, when you call.

Loving all the random stuff from Bored that’s been popping up around our neighborhood. I’m a fan of stencils and stickers and things wheat-pasted to the walls, but these larger pieces are just a lot of fun to encounter. First signs, then dice you can pick up and roll… now this. The work seems to be getting more and more interactive.
