Idea: commission [or allow] Stencil Art on anything that is bland, ugly, unloved.
think Bansky. witty playful art peppering the city. low cost, low risk, fun.
maybe a policy that requires a building owner to provide street art on a buliding if they leave it vacant for 3 years or more???
maybe a quick audit of the 100 ugliest blights on the city which are then offered up as sites for intervention, to be completed within 100 days.
stencil, street art
