Last year we had the Rise Street Art that popped up all around Christhurch, combining with an exhibition at the Canterbury Museum. This year I’ve been meaning to get into the YMCA where the Spectrum Street Art was showing. The exhibition finished today so I finally got into action and went into town to see it. There is still plenty of street art around town – new art and last year’s still adorn sides of buildings, which are great to see when there are vacant lots in front of or beside them.
Once again Banksy featured, with a privately owned collection of his works available. This year though, the focus was more on the graffiti art. A colourful free exhibition which I’m glad I managed to get to.
Along the walk down Hereford Street I also saw another feature that you see in Christchurch – a book exchange library. The original was a fridge, this one was on a smaller scale!
