How a practical joke spawned a viral art project

Not everything goes viral immediately. Milwaukee artist Molly Evans spent a good chunk of this summer stitching Lionel Richie lyrics to abandoned chairs, couches and mattresses around her neighborhood, leaving behind a small card on each one tagged #lionelstitchie for anybody curious about the project.

The resurgent label plans new records from Sugar Stems, Space Raft and more
