The Parking Ticket Emotional Reclamation Project left me speechless
I’m going to quote liberally from the Parking Ticket Emotional Reclamation Project (hereinafter, “PTERP”) website to share their incredible story with you.
“Imagine – you come back to your car to find a parking ticket on your windshield. Immediately, depression and self-blame set in. Yet when you open the envelope to assess the damages – Hark! – an angel has come to help you reclaim your emotions! An original work of art lay in tandem with the ticket! You are being taken care of!
Through the guerrilla placement of art alongside issued parking tickets, PTERP will help restore emotional balance to New York, The World, The Universe.”
How does the “PTERP” do this?
“We hand-write a note (sized to fit into the dreaded orange envelope NYC parking tickets are issued in) and ask artists, kids and regular people just like you to draw, paint, whatever, on the other side. Upon receiving the completed anti-ticket-tickets back, “PTRP” then goes out into the city, looking for windshields with tickets, and places the art!”
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid had the right idea when they asked…
Here’s a link to the “PTERP” Facebook page. You gotta “like” it!
O.K., I’m dying to ask. What do you think?
