Find Your Wish on Flickr
The wooden planks swaying from thump’s ceiling capturing brief wishes from passersby, are as much of what makes thump, thump as any delicious drinks we serve. Have you ever wondered what happens to those wishes or how many have been created? Well, local artist and “Wishes” installation creator Mark Bernahl rotates the wishes every couple of months, adding new ones, removing old ones. He has kept every single wish that has been rotated out since the “Wishes” inception more than four years ago! And, he has scanned them! You can view more than 5,000 of them here. If you wrote a wish sometime in the last four years, go to our Flickr site and see if you can find it. Over 5,000 and counting are on the site! And . . . let us know if your wish came true!
ART: Ongoing “Sharing The Road” Poster Series Display
The “Sharing the Road” poster series depicts what drivers and cyclists can do to avoid accidents. A $5000 grant was awarded to the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization to inform cyclists and drivers and help prevent crashes on our roads. City of Bend, citizens, advocates and employees worked as a group to get bike riders asking: “Am I doing this right?” and “Is this safe?” and “What are the rules?” The Posters to Coasters campaign, designed by Carrrrrlos, does that in a visually striking way. The campaign consists of posters, coasters and video. The prominent concerns with riding a bike in Bend are wrong way riding, drunk riding and night riding without lights. These actions cause the most cycling injuries and fatalities nationwide.
