Temporary art installations made entirely of Post-it® notes are showing up in building windows around Silver Spring in a project spearheaded by Downtown Silver Spring, in partnership with Pipkin Creative and muralist Patrick Owens.
The art includes the “Dr. Bear” logo from Children’s Medical Center, made by Owens with more than 20,000 Post-its, on the Georgia Avenue side of Inventa Towers.
“These creations using THOUSANDS of Post-it® notes are intended to spread some joy in our community, bring a smile and provide a warm welcome back to the office for many transitioning to working in person again,” according to the DTSS web page about the project.
In addition, DTSS has an engagement wall on Ellsworth Drive near the Wayne Avenue breezeway where visitors can post a message or a doodle on the provided Post-it® notes.
DTSS stores and restaurants will be creating their own window displays in a contest. Beginning in July, residents may vote on the DTSS website for their favorite art.
The installations will be on display through July.
