Looks like our post about potholes turned into art pieces is spreading. Los Angeles Newspaper Group writer Dana Bartholomew catches up with the artists as they parody the Chinese Gruman Theatre handprint ceremony. "'They're everywhere,' said [artist Claudia] Ficca, 28, pointing to the nearly two-foot wide pothole on a quiet residential street in sight of Griffith Observatory. 'For some reason, L.A. potholes are square, or rectangular.' 'See what I mean? This is the classic L.A. pothole.'" Interesting observation.
