Want to participate in some of our art?
Head down to the Distillery District where there is an installation called ‘LOVE’. It’s an interactive piece where you lock down your love by putting a padlock bearing your initials on the fence-like letters that spell L-O-V-E. Inspired by the Love bridges in Paris and elsewhere, this is a fun and sweet piece of art that we love!
When you are there though you will find an extra hidden surprise. Look for the black lock box with the silver stars on it, type in the answer to life, the universe and everything and find a hidden treasure! If you decide to take it please leave something else behind and, if you want, write to us to tell us about your experience with surprise and we can post it here on the blog!
Also, while you’re there don’t forget to bring your own padlock to add to the piece and lock down your love!
A conversation with a disheveled, smoking Russian man I had while we locked down our love:
Russian man: Do you know where this comes from?
Me: What do you mean?
Russian man: This comes from Paris.
Me: Oh yes, the love bridge. It collapsed under the weight of love.
Russian man: (Laughs) You know it!
Russian man: We don’t love in Russia.
Russian man: Not like this. In Russia we get drunk and punch each other in the face.
Me: Well I suppose…that’s…a kind of love.
