Mary McMahon showed a -video about a self taught Indian artist Nek Chand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5RtTOs_Im8
Bruno’s Garden Marysville has been rebuilt, It is an inspiration to keep going. There were lots of helpers and the work was done..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgvlAG0GsN0 there’s plenty more so go hunting :-)
Then we noted an article about public art /sculpture. With commentary from Khapoor Robertson Swan et al. It was quite a discussion: ‘’all art is public." unless the artist says it’s private, What is the reason for public art? Too much to record - you had to be there since Gordon wasn’t to record it better.
