For our Trailing Spouses Art Collective, we each created our own personal advertisement for what we liked best about living in Bielefeld. The theme could also be interpreted in an ironic or playful way. As the idea was to cheer us up in these gloomy winter months and be as positive as possible about our adopted city. So the more over the top the better! Here are a few of our ‘ads’.

Cheryl designed these book marks inspired by the recent snow, thunder and hail storm last week.


Piia is in love with the new Stadtbahn and made this picture inspired by a Finnish artist from her home country (Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s BIL aktie BOL poster advertising an automobile retailer in the 1907.)


Patty’s entertaining ad took inspiration from Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom brochure.
