Pothole art

Chicago Artist Jim Bachor repairs the city’s potholes with an artistic flair, filling them with concrete and topping with mosaic art.

If installed in conditions that are too cold, the mosaics have a decreased chance of longevity.

Bachor has learned to choose potholes carefully. The ideal pothole is about 18x24 inches, with stable pavement around it.

Bachor's branded design mirrors the Chicago flag—white, with four red stars sandwiched by two light-blue stripes.
