Monopoly on the (real) streets

July 15, 2012 at 4:47 by Mark Comments

[via PSFK] A group of anonymous artists known by β€˜Boredβ€˜ have created a life-size version of Monopoly using the streets of Chicago as their giant game board. Sidewalk blocks are painted to mirror the various properties in the classic game board (renamed for Chicago streets), while various pieces of the game- the Chance and Community Chest Cards, six-sided die, and houses and hotels dot the city.

The goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.
