The Canberra Times’ Diana Streak made it to the ANU School of Art yesterday to report on the Chiefly Stanhope’s musings on public art.
Miraculously, since the ACT Government stopped spending so much money on public art, Mr Stanhope has noted less heat in the community on the subject. What could possibly have brought that about one wonders facetiously.
He’s also cunningly linking having a centenary artwork to the general “Percent For Art Scheme”.
(If he doesn’t get what he wants we don’t get what we want.)
