Freebies: Diesel Beefs Up Chelsea

A few months ago, Diesel put out a call for artists to submit ideas for a giant mural to be painted on the side of a building at 220 West 19th Street. It's all part of the brand's Diesel Wall initiative; they've already done similar art contests in Manchester and Zürich. The winning artist in New York is Jonathan Sandridge; his design, an abstract cheeseburger. The piece has just been painted onto the wall, and to celebrate this, Diesel is giving away free cheeseburgers tomorrow at 12:30 by the mural on 19th and Seventh Ave. You know, public art projects are great and all, but free food? That's something we can really get behind.
