Turned off by the mundane street art scene in Chicago, anonymous art collective Bored quietly switched things up a few months ago by planting pieces of a life-sized version of Monopoly in the city’s Logan Square neighborhood. Last week, the blogosphere was abuzz with sightings of new additions to the installation, which is comprised of painted plywood dice, playing cards, houses, and spray-painted sidewalks made to mimic the classic board game. Frequent onlookers have discovered that the messages on the Change and Community Chest cards are constantly changing, displaying snarky or cryptic text. Quips like “Go to jail for public douchebaggery” or “Carissa, will you marry me?" keep the project entertaining, while residents can only wonder what’ll pop up next.
