Trains are cool. Buildings are important. But here at This Big City we think people are the best thing about cities. That’s why we’ve spent the last five years sharing stories from urban communities across the globe. The communities painting bike infrastructure, turning streets into parklets, organizing family activities, starting urban farms, and standing up for pedestrian rights. And we want to do more. If you want to help us, head here and share your feedback.
All this week on the AMAM Tumblr, we’ll be clearing out our queue of reblogs. Each day we will (finally!) re-blog a post that caught our eye or made us think over the past few months. Today’s a fun one from the Fly Art Productions Tumblr. If you like your art history with a splash of hip-hop, that’s the site for you. We don’t have this particular work in the AMAM collection, but we do have plenty of prints by Kuniyoshi.
