Why hang Teddy Bears from power lines?

The last time we wrote about things hanging from power lines, it was the red glittery shoes (that are still there, btw) put up by artist Manny Castro to advertise his show at Echo Park gallery iam8bit. Now joining the sun-soaked glitter shoes are stuffed teddy bears hanging from power lines all over Los Angeles, including Echo Park, West Hollywood, Silver Lake, and Los Feliz so far. We’ve heard the rumors, but the Franklin Avenue blog also asks the question we are asking – what’s up with all the hanging teddy bears?

It’s probably not some Build-A-Bear ad campaign, but we’re thinking something more like a some hipster art project and less like the Care Bears are going to sell you some drugs. Let us know if you’ve got the details.

    Beige teddy bears with either red tape over the eyes, or the whole head painted red are popping up in Highland Park. Every time I see one, in my head I say to the punk I imagine surely did it, “Grow up. Get a job.”
