Friday Roundup: Late Lunch Edition

Happy Friday, and welcome to a slightly belated edition of the public art news roundup.

It’s been a noisy week in Queens, with Mets fans screaming their lungs out every night outside my window. I guess as I write this the team finally has some time off – apparently they won something pretty big on Wednesday night, so they probably deserve it. The pulsing joy and optimism that I’ve been witnessing among my long-suffering neighbors is almost enough to make me rethink my moral opposition to America’s/Earth’s sports industrial complex. Almost.

Anyway – now to the roundup:

Twenty thousand feet of cord have been woven under a Philadelphia train station ceiling, via designboom.

Mass Live on the bumpy start to Massachusetts’s Percent For Art program.

Calfornia officials say no, thanks to free public art, via the Coast News.

As usual, Curbed has some great photos of new public art, this time of “Art on the Beltine” in Atlanta.

Protestors were wasting their time on Renoir during the last weekend of the Whitney’s Jeff Koons retrospective.
