Treats in the Streets: Artist Jim Bachor Fills Potholes with Ice Cream Mosaics 

treats-1

For the third year in a row Chicago artist Jim Bachor (previously here and here) has taken it upon himself to preemptively fix city potholes by filling them with themed mosaics. This year Bachor decided on a series of 10 pothole mosaics called Treats in the Streets featuring different kinds of ice cream. At the latest count, four artworks have appeared in locations around Chicago, and he traveled all the way to Jyväskylä, Finland last week to do three more mosaics including a local popsicle-like dessert called Amppari-mehujaa. Bachor says to keep an eye out for three more pieces back home in Chicago sometime before spring is out.

Melting Ice Cream Truck by the Glue Society 

As a kid, the summertime tragedy of dropping newly scooped ice cream on the sweltering hot ground is comparable to few other horrors, except maybe this sculpture by the Glue Society. The melting ice cream truck is a sculpture titled Hot With The Chance of Late Storm that was unveiled at the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney. Quick, somebody get a giant spoon. (via ian brooks)
