Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Brandalism: UK public art-public space project

See "Brandalism: Street artists hijack billboards for 'subvertising campaign'" from the Independent, the Brandalism website, and "Brandalism,” The World's First Collaborative Act Of Ad Subversion" from Fast Company Magazine.

Space Hijackers, Olympic Village, East London. One of the complaints about the Olympics in London is that people and organizations who don't pay big fees to the Olympics can't use Olympics-related words in advertising and other settings. E.g., see "Who’s ripped off now?: Sponsors get very, very angry about other people being allowed to play with words" from the Financial Times.

One easy way to decorate a nursery is to use an image from art history. Many western painters have painted for
children, such as this painting, by English artists Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7RP , should look good on the
nursery wall.

It's available as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your home, from wahooart.com. It's affordable too.
