I’m not sure if this can be called street art because buying three pounds of sprinkles to fill up a crack 8 feet longs means nothing to me.
I find that to be an awful waste of food, money and all sorts of things. But hey-art! Right?

Most days, South Philadelphia resident Rebecca Kenton looks out the window of her apartment and sees an ordinary, right-angled crack in the street, jutting through the concrete as street cracks are wont to do.
But yesterday afternoon—Valentine’s Day—she saw that her friendly neighborhood infrastructure breach had dressed up for the holiday: Someone had filled it to the brim with rainbow sprinkles. Photos show the eight-foot crack multicolored and resplendent, if a little garish.
