Art in Public Spaces

Sometimes a bus stop can be subtle, the location unmarked and imaginary. Sometimes it is very obvious - but none are as literal as this new bus stop in Baltimore. The word BUS is spelled out in planks to create a playful seating area and shade. You wouldn't want to do this everywhere, but I'm glad they did it here.

Art superstar Ai Wei Wei recently teamed up with Navajo artist Bert Benally to create "Pull of the Moon", a temporary installation in Coyote Canyon in the Navajo Nation (165 miles outside of Albuquerque, NM). The work is part of the Navajo TIME (Temporary Installations Made for the Environment) project, a partnership between New Mexico Arts and the Navajo Nation Museum.
