Hobart Street Art
|Example 1 (x 2)|
Some of it is sanctioned, funded and maintained. Some is opportunistic and subversive. Some you will find beautiful and other work you will just wonder why. No, really why?
Art in public places has the potential to make you think.
It brings colour to the drudgery of our city streets.
|Example 3 (x 3)|
Some of it, when done well, provides a forum for community participation, ownership and inclusivity.
It is nice to know that it is out there.
|Example 8 (x2)|
Note- not all of these pieces can still be found (damn Hobart City Council and their graffiti painting program – this is art dudes!)
