This Art Brings Sesame Street to the Beach

Bert is the Word.

FIELD NOTES: It is a sunny day, the clouds are being swept away, and the spring air sure is sweet. This graffiti-covered concrete might not be the best place to come and play, where everything is A-OK, or where there are friendly neighbours to meet, but that’s alright. This giant portrait of Sesame Street‘s Bert, especially when combined with the promise of nicer weather, manages to elicit the child-like glee and optimism of Sesame Street, community, and happy days! We hope you have a sunny day too.
