Keith Haring’s Road Repairs

tar_haringsWe suspect there’s a local road-maintenance worker who likes to make the work of filling pavement cracks an ode to the art of Keith Haring.

UPDATE: This neighborhood’s roads were repaved on or about 15 August 2013 — the art is gone! But the roads do make more sense now, monolithically speaking.

UPDATE 2, Sept. 2014: For more unintentional Ogle County art, see here.
