Nyctophilia: a rare example of great public art

Nyctophilia, the art exhibit in Mount Dennis that generated a fair bit of controversy when it  opened in 2014, has a prominent role in a deep-think piece on public art. It’s worth the read; public art is neither particularly received nor understood, but Nyctophilia is unusual:

[The artists] found Nyctophilia especially rewarding because they got to work in a neighbourhood where public art might not usually exist. It’s a challenge to uneven urban development, Young says. It suggests there ought to be cultural investment in all parts of the city, not just downtown.

  1. So much better could of been done….its not appropriate art for the space…takes up perfectly good sidewalk space that could of some day been a patio for a nice cafe or restaurant….
