There’s a festival going on in Sydney right now called “Art and About.” Basically, the whole city has turned into one big art installation, and it’s fantastic. There are art bulletins on the lampposts all over the city, temporary art spaces hidden in little laneways, bars with live music and Djs that magically open and appear in other little laneways (Bulletin Bar, below), and a huge “Sydney Life” exhibit featuring huge canvas photos all down the middle of Hyde Park. My favorite is “Tree,” what our cities are in danger of becoming.
