Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Baby Doll Faces in the Chelsea Gallery District (And Elsewhere!)

I first started noticing the mysterious Pink Baby Doll Faces as they popped up here and there in my Instagram feed. When I realized there were quite a few scattered all over what is obviously NYC’s Chelsea Gallery District — because of course they are — Geoffrey and I went out on an Urban Art Safari.

A little bit of Googling revealed to me that the Pink Baby Doll Faces started showing up in Denver back in Spring of 2016. I couldn’t find any information on the artist. The origin of the Baby Doll Faces is truly a mystery!

They are fun to spot. Go exploring with friend and turn it into a game!

There are a few different faces, which appear to be made of cast Plaster of Paris and then painted pink (or sometimes violet). Some have hair and others do not.
