Intersection art 3Intersection art 2This slideshow of beautiful art at intersections shows that community streets don’t have to be bare windswept places where the timid fear to tread.

It would be great to see some of this art around Auckland. Like murals to prevent tagging, I believe this kind of art work can make people in cars aware that they are driving over a public and community space, not just a thoroughfare for cars. It increases the feeling that the space belongs to everyone and needs to be shared and valued.

I don’t know how we could get something like this done in Auckland but I would love to see it happen.

Anyone out there have any ideas how to get this started?
