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.

Rob's comment:
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?

Add to that cost assessment of $38,000 for 24/7 security. After all, when you've got $9 Billion to play with each year this is chump change.

Maybe the whole white bunny thing is a sly promo for the Alice Through the Looking Glass movie. Sounds like SFgov, they're easy to sucker -- the one's that mother gives you don't do anything at all
