Cool Idea: Urban Curators

Urban Curators is a Providence-based project that highlights "interesting and unexpected areas of urban environments," aiming to celebrate the decaying and the overlooked. Gold, gallery-style frames are hung over urban graffiti, mossy walls, layers of peeling, wheat-pasted posters, or brick peaking out from a building's exterior. In other words, the frames urge passersby to acknowledge the beauty or the cultural value in the derelict. Much like photography, this "curation" crops out the whole picture, focusing in on a singular element of an environment. I've seen empty frames hung on interior residential walls before, but never highlighting this sort of decay. If there's a place or wall in your home that needs a little fixing up, perhaps you might frame it à la Urban Curators until you can afford a remodel?

Hmm, I do have a hole in the wall that I've been too lazy too fix and I'm just covering it over with a poster, but perhaps I should embrace this hole in the wall instead of hide it! :-P
