Happy Saturday, and welcome to a belated edition of the public art news roundup.
This week started with one of the most distracting news Mondays in recent memory (see: pizza rat, piggate), then stayed distracting all through the #popein road trip of America, and into Friday when Boehner jumped ship. Since I was writing about NYC zoning regulations for most of that time – thrilling stuff, if you’re an urban space nerd like me, but doesn’t research itself – these have been a trying few days.
So let’s get to the roundup.
From Acid Rain, a look at public art hung from a laundry line in Ridgewood, Queens. (NOT a typo, Ridgewood is NOT in Brooklyn.)
Protest art is popping up in Boston’s Chinatown in response to resident displacement, via the Artery.
