Cool public art in the pipeline for Palo Alto (Ala & Binta)

Ala Ebtekar and Binta Ayofemi

(the blue tunnel thingy did not cut and paste from staff report, will update)

(you can find it here, in the staff report, if you scroll down)

edit to add: Elise DeMarzo sent me the JPEG: it’s funny how excited I got over this, whichi is just a doctored picture of the tunnel under El Camino, on Uni Ave — reminds of the 2014 article new to me by Peter S about Jeff Koons in New Yorker and New York and the relative small distinction between a fake blow up bunny and a real one.

Peter Schjehdahl in The New Yorker, on Koons. It’s funny I had such a strong reaction to a photo-shopped picture of the tunnel. The other Ebtekar I had seen was more technique-oriented. Apparently he is teaching at Stanford, where he got an MFA in 2006 and leading his students on this project.
