Acadian Boulevard Gets A Facelift

I am sure you are aware of the uprising in urban "renegade" art in the world today. Artists such as Mark Jenkins, Dan Witz, and Knitta are not only changing the appearance of city streets, but also pushing the envelope of what is considered "art". Baton Rouge is not the most creative city in the world by any means, but I was pleased to see an attempt at changing the face of our little cityscape. I don't know who is responsible, but someone in our community turned these old abandoned gas pumps into robots. There's a male, noted by the bow tie, and female noted by the girly lashes, and breasts (one of which has fallen off since it's application.) Thank you, whoever you are, for making life in Baton Rouge, if nothing else, a little more fun to look at.
