Bottle Art

Art as an invasive species. Are beer bottles the local version of kudzu? This is on Monmouth, near 5th. This short stretch of block is prone to creativity. This blossom of bottles is right next to this sign art first notice a few months back. Simple, clever… echoes an environmentally sustainable message—recycling—universally appreciated while also commenting on the garish disposable consumer culture sucking away on our souls. And celebrates Beer, both the design of bottles and labels and as a nectar of the gods fuel for a summer bacchanal. It’s hot and we need to be with friends and drink a lot of it, the more friends, the better. We need enough beer to make a bush and vine out of glass. There’s always something brewing in Jersey City’s random art scene.
