Maybe you saw one or more of the Bijou's Hamburgers while they were installed at various locations around town. The photo above of what we came to call a "Hamburger" was taken with my iPad on Oct. 8, 2015, in the basement of Anchor Studios' space at 1 E. Broad St. That's where a crew of artists combined to create it and the 11 others in the series. In the crew were: Shane Brown, Michael Harl, James Parrish, Terry Rea, Ed Trask and Chuck Wrenn.
The Hamburgers that were subsequently put on public display in mid- to late-October were made using a stencil that was furnished by Big Secret. The images were made with spray-paint. Each one-eighth-inch panel measured approximately 4' by 2.66'.
|One of the first Hamburgers to go on display was at Balliceaux.|
How the Hamburgers came to be cooked up and served makes for an interesting story that will be posted soon. So this post is yet another teaser. Stay tuned...
