Vandalist: Ripley’s Aquarium Sidewalk Art Leaves Us Feeling Crabby

Ripley's Aquarium is snapping to it with this clever sidewalk art.

FIELD NOTES: Pinch us, we’re dreaming! Could this be fun street art have been created by Ripley’s Aquarium? And could this have been painted without the permission of the city? Neither are confirmed, but both are possible. It’s interesting how a company can get away with using public property for something creative in a way that would label an initiative-taking individual as a criminal. It’s a double standard that ought not be glorified but, in this case, we’re going to be a little shellfish and make an exception, because crabs!
