The Sunday Arts Program on ABC TV is inviting people to submit photos to their website for inclusion in their online art gallery. They are specifically seeking photos of public art in your community. Submissions are not restricted to Australian residents only. Public art from all over the globe is welcome. So if you have some interesting public art where you live why not take a photo, upload it and share. Or you may already have some photos of public art that you’ve taken while visiting other areas, so you could upload those. There is a lot of ‘commissioned’ public art around Brisbane but much of it doesn’t appeal to me. I often find the ‘non-commissioned’ public art more interesting. I took this photo of some stencil art I found in New Farm a while back & just uploaded it.
You probably can’t make out the Andy Warhol quote, but it’s one of my favourites of his. “Art is what you can get away with”...and it is indeed Andy!
I'd like to wish you American folk a very happy Independence Day!
Enjoy your 4th of July celebrations, whether it be BBQs in the backyard with friends & family or bikini-clad frolicking in the ocean while twirling pretty polka dot umbrellas. Have fun & stay safe!
