Just for something different

why can’t Sydney’s and Australia’s leaders have this sort of vision??

In one of the many links/stories that come across my messages everyday, every now and then one really hits the spot. Many have lamented the lack of edgy public art in our major cities, and this article on the city of Nantes in France really shows how it can be done.

Even the more ‘arts enlightened’ town of Broken Hill can learn a heck of a lot!

I know it is a bit of a dream, but what would our local world be like with quality installations to uplift and challenge our minds hiding around ‘the corner’ to surprise and delight?

Enjoy the link below and agitate for the town planners/pollies to open their minds!
