Yes Septa - nice move - go green


One of our favorite green public artists, Edina Tokodi, is at it once again with her shape-shifting moss graffiti and urban guerrilla tactics. Tokodi was recently commissioned by SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) to encourage Philadelphia’s commuters to ‘Go Green’ with her navigable moss icons and green walls in the East Market Station’s passenger service area, ticketing area, and on the exterior of the station building and Transportation Museum. The initiative is part of SEPTA’s mission to help commuters become more aware of the positive environmental impact that they might make by using mass transit regularly.

Philly’s effort to ‘Go Green’ via ‘moss transit’ might be just the way to start another American Revolution. We hope that other cities nationwide will soon be eager to get on board and take the green express as well!....

Smart move, nice marketing. Septa's fares look a lot better with gas prices through the roof.

sixerzguy here,

For fun, in your opinion, who's a horrible public artist, a non-favorite?

Also, how did that woman become your favorite? Are there lots of public artists in the world? Is it like college and the NBA, you can get the chance to see them before they get big? Did that question make sense?

lol, don't know, man. Moishe put up that post, but yeah, if you follow the art world you could definitely spot emerging stars, and make solid investments. Right Moishe?
