Kelli Harper, Vanna Zona, Leann Diehl, and Dan Guzek
with a Wooster Collective grant
For one of my birthdays I made balloons and planned to hand them out on the street. It was too windy and cold that year (as it always is on March 6 in the northeast, Toronto no less), so my project didn't come to fruition. Instead the balloons were in a show. In a gallery. Far from my birthday. Stationary.
Wooster Collective, based in NYC, celebrates street art around the world. Occasionally they put forward the question: If you had $50 to spend on art, how would you spend it? This time, Kelli Harper, Vanna Zona, Leann Diehl, and Dan Guzek took the prize with "Balloon Project", where they bought $50 worth of balloons and handed them out on the streets of Pennsylvania.
