Crap "art" and Cute Movement team up
From the NBC story:
Australian artist Amanda Parer, who created the 23-foot-tall glowing bunnies, calls her work "Intrude" and says on her website her art is about "changing usual places." In Parer's native Australia, rabbits have caused a great imbalance in the country's delicate ecosystem since the animals were introduced in 1788.
Then why do it here? Do your crap installation in Australia.
Your tax dollars at work:
San Francisco Arts Commission spokeswoman Kate Patterson said the art will be taking over public space in the plaza so all can see the illuminated animals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The artwork loan and installation cost $84,000, Patterson said. The city paid $54,000 through the Arts Commission, $25,000 came through the Public Art Trust, a voluntary donation from private development, and $4,500 came from private donations.
What's with the thing the city has about rabbits?
