Seen in Ushuaia

I’m getting good feedback on the “Seen in” posts, so here’s a surprisingly large amount of public and street art as seen in Ushuaia. I had been driving Nikki nuts with my outbursts of “street art!” as we walked around the town. Then when we went to Mendoza  together a few months later, she went totally Tourettes  on me whenever she’d see anything I might like to photograph. Nice to know I made an impression.

Always do these with Jim in mind.

Lots of politically conscious art here, more than I really saw elsewhere, especially as it relates to the indigenous population that had been wiped out
