Art @ Bundanon

Think you’d like to spend a few days at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon residence staying in accommodation designed by Glen Murcott? If you haven’t done so already, check out this video of Wyndham students at Bundanon and get a deposit back to the front office by 25th October. This is a great opportunity to be part of an exceptional immersion into some serious art-making.

 

Academic subjects alone won’t cut it.

“Employers are crying out for recruits who are creative. The notion that arts and music are not seen as ‘hard’ enough subjects is damaging to the economy.”

Here’s a thoughtful; albeit, relatively brief piece, on the value of creative thinking and creativity in education.

The notion that the Arts should sit below the post industrial hierarchy of English, Maths, Science and the Humanities is antiquated. Everything we have (man-made) comes from the minds of creative people. Simply ludicrous to undervalue it.

The Hours Tower Mural Project

I saw this at this years Semi Permanent. A great collaborative street project.

 

“The Hours Tower Mural Project is an ongoing art project at The 4217 in Surfers Paradise, Australia which aims to bring well known artists to the Gold Coast to collaborate together using the three storey high lift-shaft at The 4217 as their canvas.

Curated by The Hours, the project will regularly see two different Australian artists invited to paint a collaborative artwork on the huge lift-shaft, providing Surfers Paradise with a truly unique large scale and evolving piece of public art.

This is the first mural for the ongoing project, painted by Beastman and Jae Copp in April 2013.” @ Vimeo
