Echo Park in Los Angeles has many great things to offer. And one of them is Mugshot Coffee Roasters.
Medici recently visited the java shop to “plant” some hope in the central Los Angeles neighborhood as part of his ongoing #Planthope installation.
Medici’s ongoing #PlantHope series features original “bulbs” that are used as a metaphor for planting an idea, like hope. The artist envisions passersby who see these artworks will take a photo and share it across their social platforms with the hashtag #planthope. With glow in the dark lettering, these art pieces are visible at night as well.
“You plant a bulb, and something grows,” says Medici. “Together, we all can grow hope by sharing, albeit virtually.”
