Cities around the world have seen a rise in public art installations, giving streets a much-needed, albeit temporary, facelift, with people like Sean Martindale heading the movement.
Sean Martindale's installation grew into a huge project labeled 'Outside the Planter Boxes' that invited various artists to participate. In fact, Trend Hunter Amelia Roblin recently wrote about Karen Abel, who revitalized one planter with origami flowers.
By encouraging more direct participation and interest in shared public spaces, Sean Martindale demonstrates that individuals in society can play a more active role in how a city is shaped.
Sean Martindale launched his installations in the city of Toronto and will hopefully keep contributing to cleaning up the city for a green cause.
