A group of unknown artists set out to make people's days by placing inspirational signs throughout the City of Bristol.

Fifty of the signs have popped up and each one has a different message.

"They're so many people who go around sad and when they see something like that, it makes them smile," said Betty Jaynes of Bristol.

Jaynes said when she walked to the end of her street, she couldn't help but smile.

She read a sign that said "have a good day" near the traffic light at an intersection.

"It gives people hope that people are still human, and other people do understand," Jaynes said.

A group of anonymous artists, ranging from children to adults, put the signs out. They have messages like "someone loves you" and "do what makes your soul happy."

The lettering is done in colorful paint.

An organizer of the project told Eyewitness News over the phone that it took them a few weeks to make the signs. On a Friday night, they put them up during the cover of darkness.

"That's a very nice thing to do," said Becky Moran after seeing one of the signs.

The artists said they were touched by the positive feedback they received over social media.

They added that maybe someday they'll reveal who they are.

In the meantime, they said another positive project is already in the works.

"Hopefully, they will come forward and say who they are," Jaynes said. "So people can recognize who they are."

The artists said they plan to shuffle the signs around the city so other people in other neighborhoods can enjoy them.

All of the signs will be taken down after the holiday season.
