I am a big fan of “You Are Beautiful”. Bravo for such a super addition to the project. I work in Philadelphia near the recent sign at Northern Liberties on Spring Street, and when I saw it -it really made my day. However I have one big issue with it. That was months ago, and nobody ever went back to pick up the remnants, they are hanging on the fence like trash and it is October 5th.

I believe this is the opposite of creating art that is beautiful and sustainable, it is now another example of leftovers like litter that does more to hurt the idea of spontaneous art, than to lift it. Please send someone to clean up.
Thank you.
