Sidewalk Sale at The Street
At the Sidewalk Sale, The Street will debut its fifth major public art initiative in less than two years. Presented in association with Art Production Fund, artist Curtis Kulig will unveil an original, site specific mural – ‘99.9% Happy’ – at The Street and host an interactive public sticker installation that afternoon from 12-2pm.
The mural and stickers will feature Kulig’s iconic Love Me, a simple, two-word manifesto spotted in cities around the world, including London, Paris, Istanbul and Tokyo. His signatureLove Me catapulted Kulig into fame, garnering coverage from The New York Times, Vanity Fair and Vogue, attracting attention from collectors, celebrities and creative directors alike, including Bobbi Brown, the Kardashians, Karlie Kloss, Pharrell Williams and Seth Rogen, and leading to multiple fashion collaborations.
Specifically, ‘99.9% Happy’ is comprised of 53 black and white Love Me signature smiley faces and one frowny face in red. The mural will be located on the façade of 33 Boylston Street and spans 8.2 feet wide and 54.5 feet tall. During the Sticker Installation, participants will receive small versions of Kulig’s signature smiley stickers and have the opportunity to work alongside the artist by placing the stickers on designated surfaces at The Street. The mural and stickers will be permanently on view at the property.
In addition to this exciting new art, The Street’s Sidewalk Sale offers incredible summer discounts, perks and entertainment across the property’s 43 stores and restaurants.
