Art and the City

Art in public places

It is always great to see art being an everyday, every-place part of life in a city, like this description of art in public life at Miami city:

However, one hardly ever hears of such initiatives in Indian cities. I was pleasantly surprised to hear therefore of an effort in Hauz Khas village, New Delhi, by Columbian artist Vicky Fadul. I am waiting to visit there soon and see the outcome myself. Looking forward to more such initiatives in Indian cities.
