Fill 'er up?

By Renee Piechocki

Artist's Statement

A few years ago, a friend and I were talking about strange places some people seek romance. Gas stations topped our list, maybe because of our lack of positive romantic encounters filling up our cars or buying Cokes.  I was compelled to start reading missed connections ads on Craigslist, and found that there are many people who see the potential for love, lust, and friendship at the pump.


Renee Piechocki is an artist and public art consultant.  She has found two missed connections on Craigslist that were directed at her.  Neither were at gas stations.
