A message from the Dept. of Well Being
Here’s a dose of optimism from the so-called Department of Well Being. We spotted this sign – a riff on the “no honking” traffic warnings – outside the Broadway-Lafayette subway station.
This is just one sighting in a recent street blitz from British born painter Killy Kilford. He’s apparently put up some 200 of these bad boys across town. EV Grieve also discovered a couple of similar placements on Second Avenue that read “Listen to Your Heart” and “New York Loves You.”
According to AOL, Kilford wasn’t thrilled with all the negative traffic signs around town when he moved here earlier this year. The answer was this glass-half-full street campaign. With the recent widespread awareness, the artist hopes that one day local government can institute a Department of Well Being within the local government to “increase happiness.”
