art meets community activism

Frustrated about a little annoyance in your town? Think that the city government system is ridiculous and impossible to move?

Artist Jason Eppink got sick of a leak from a viaduct that created a puddle of scum for pedestrians to maneuver around. So he created the Astoria Scum River Bridge. The installation provided a service to pedestrians and called attention to a problem in an entertaining way. (And shortly thereafter, city officials actually solved the problem.)

Art making change is a beautious thing.
