The Pot in the Hole Project


Today's Washington Post reports on an art project in Kampala, Uganda capitalizing on one of the city's most prevalent natural resources......potholes.

The holes are filled with a mixture of cement and plaster, then decorated by local artists.

"There are only four or five galleries in Kampala, and very few Ugandans go to them," said Roberta Wagner, director of culture at the Ugandan German Cultural Society. "We are trying to create new places for artists to display their work and show people in Uganda that art is part of life."

It's not neglect by an impoverished government, people....it's an opportunity to enjoy Art!
