Can Sydney council put on a public art show big enough for big city expectations, yet still creative, representing local artists, relevant to the local community?
Art & About is underway until October 24 at various sites in Hyde Park North, Erskineville Road, George Street laneways, Oxford Street and Danks Street, as well as banners along various city streets, including William Street and Kings Cross Road.
I can see Paddy Bedford’s bright yellow banner from my balcony. If you didn’t know it was part of this show, you might think it was… an oblique promo for some new festival? a summery splash of colour?
(Louise Hearman’s fascinating, odd banners featuring a dog’s head on a black background are up the street near Hyde Park)
Not sure if Sydney council’s done it, or even if it’d see that as something to aspire to?
