A new art project in NYC called Garden In Transit will see giant hand-painted flowers applied to the hoods, trunks or roofs of NYC'ss yellow taxis. The NY Times reports:

The flowers “will soon transform the ubiquitous yellow icon into a mobile artistic canvas,” according to a news release from Portraits of Hope, the nonprofit program that is organizing the effort.

…The cab owners and drivers do not have to pay for the flower patterns, and participation is voluntary. The vinyl flowers do not damage the cabs and are easily removed. The organizers hope to get a majority of the city’s 13,000 yellow cabs to participate.
