Art or Advertising Gimmick? Gardencity Zürich 2009

Click photo to enlarge

If you have been in the city of Zürich at all this summer, you will have seen these decorated pots all over the street. They are a part of the 'Gartencity Zürich 2009' or Garden City Project - a scheme by the tourism board to beautify the city and it is actually just an addition to a long line of themed decorations taking over the streets each summer.

I am not the first to post about this - Romy did a great write up a few months ago...

I have to admit, I would have preferred a cow (one of the previous themes 'Cows on Parade' - cows decorated all pretty like).

What do you think? Art? Gimmick? Love it? Hate it?

I like it...especially the one by the Coop downtown that looks like a loaf of bread. :-)
