Not too current, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

I almost apologized to one of these men business when I bumped into him a while back. Smile

They're in Swanston St, CBD, Melbourne.

@msolga,
Whoops.
I sent this to the wrong thread.
There's one about current exhibitions (which I still can't find) & I mistook it for this one.

Last year the Immersive Surfaces project brought some trippy lights to the Manhattan Bridge during the DUMBO Arts Fest, but this year they really brought it. Below you'll find nearly 14 minutes of the totally transfixing projections. The only problem is the music, so we suggest turning down the volume on Vimeo, and cranking up some of your own tunes (The Who's Tommy? Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon? Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" on loop? Up to you).

Oh yeah, very cool.

I agree about the music though, you'd have to pick you own, if you wanted to even hear music.

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon would be perfect.

I could just see lighting up a fat one and losing yourself in it.

Frans Hamburgers is now closed. The burgers were greasy and nasty. I don't know where "Lil' Fran" is.

Here in the a-hole o' Texas they've been beautifying Interstate 10 making it less drab, utilitarian grey concrete and more colorful.

At the top of the lighted towers there are turbines that spin in the wind and provide electricity that help power the lights. They look like waterfalls when they spin.

'Betrayed, Tricked & Undermined': An Uproar In Harlem Triggers Calls To Reform NYC's Public Art Process
Quote:
Following an outcry over a vote to choose a replacement for a controversial statue of J. Marion Sims in Central Park, a group of elected officials and community members are seeking to reform New York City's selection process for public art amid a growing chorus of complaints about questionable choices and lack of transparency.

@tsarstepan,
We've got Pre-Raphaelites.

https://www.southamptoncityartgallery.com/whats-on/beyond-the-brotherhood-pre-raphaelite-legacy/<br />
Earlier this year we had some Da Vinci.

Not the same league as NYC though.
