Friday Finds: Stairmasters

24 Aug

There is nothing I love more than being out & about and coming across a fabulous piece of street art or public sculpture.  Something I’ve noticed lately is a wonderful propensity for decorating public staircases.  Here are a few of my favorite examples from around the world!

Who knew Valparaiso, Chile was so full of street art goodness?  Definitely on my list of places to visit now!  Have a favorite pair of artsy stairs?  Share ’em over on the Artsy Forager Facebook page!

    Wow! great steps, particularly the ones from Valparaiso, Beirut, and Helsinki. That’s a lot of Granny Squares on those steps in Helsinki.
