We’ve all seen it – half consumed chicken wings tossed on the street, under subway seats, washed upon on the shore. It’s never a pleasant sight, or is it? Whoever is behind the “Chicken on the Street” art project believes we shouldn’t turn our back on mauled drumsticks. No, we should celebrate the serendipitous discovery of chicken (and all chicken related items), take pictures of them and pass them around as if part of a meal.
It’s been just a month since this curious, comical conveyor of “Chicken on the Street” started collecting photographs of golden nuggets, broken eggs, and empty Perdue wrappings on the streets of Brooklyn but there is national appeal. Sure New York City was considered one of the top ten “dirtiest” cities by Travel+Leisure last year, but so were New Orleans, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Miami, Memphis and Houston. Join in. Wing it. Bak Bak!
