    Several years ago in Ottawa, at the National Gallery, our tax dollars went to pay for some artist to paint a 3-footwide vertical stripe on a wall. Over $1M :eek:

    Maybe MightStripes could've done the same thing for a lot less :D

    I wonder how a price like that is determined? And then I wonder how someone approves spending the money to cover the project?:mad5:

    Atleast in the US, a predetermined amount is set aside to support public art projects each year for the large cities.

    Among other sources of art funding, listed under "percent for art" here: Funding Sources for Public Art | Project for Public Spaces (PPS)

    Check out the "Wash Me" book...

    Some I like, some not so much. But one can compare this one to other art cars.... you all can decide for your selves where this one "ranks"....
