Public Art Appreciation – Canberra Style

johnboy 14 September 2010 7

Youtuber Saltybrutus has a unique form of art appreciation around Canberra. Above is his take on City Walk which came with this note:

found these cute chubby russian doll type of statues @ garema place – civic – act – with my mate dazza & husbear digit

Deserving of wider attention, if not a wider audience.

– i love this website – i am a locally born Canberran – back in the days on the maternity ward of the Canberra hospital in fact – and I love the forum for people to discuss the issues and topics about Canberra and it’s surrounds, it’s people, environment & culture – and especially the arts. Thanks Deref for your comments – and I certainly don’t mean to take away any value & meaningful or pleasure derived from public art – however, as a gay bear – I could not help but react the way I did with my bear friend & Husbear – to muck around – to delight in what the artwork had illicit in me – I loved it – and wish more artwork was this accessible – great job in riotACT – and thank you all to the comments 🙂 – ps – see the link below regarding bear culture if you are not familiar:

😀 Public art should be open to appreciation (or denigration) in any way that the public wants.

Well done, Saltybrutus.

Nice work at perpetuating stereotypes
