Most “street art” is not actually in the street, but these are. Somewhere between Caspar the Friendly Ghost and The Scream, these poor guys have apparently been run down by rush hour traffic and left to molder in the crosswalks, the White Guy at the SW corner of the Connecticut/S/Florida conflagration and the Yellow Guy in the west crosswalk at Connecticut and R. I assume it’s a commentary on traffic’s menace to pedestrians, but maybe they’re just for fun.

Anyone else see these in other spots around town?
