There is a community on flickr titled "Banksy Interactive
". Its a community where people post photos of people interacting with Banksy's pieces.

For me, thats what art in the public sphere is all about... for interactive environment.

I would totally join Mike's walk down Wilshire Blvd
if I already didn't have plans that day.
An excerpt:I'm going to walk the entire length of Wilshire Boulevard, from downtown to Santa Monica. All 16 miles. With plenty of stops along the way to gawk at buildings, eat some food and take it all in. I'm hoping to get as many people as possible to join in on the fun, to make it an urban safari -- and perhaps gain a new perspective on our city in the process.

I was walking down Cahuenga the other day, and passed by the Submerged Art Gallery
. I noticed something that I never noticed before:
A beautiful mural. I don't know who the artist is.

I remember seeing this poster below by Artemio Rodriguez
in the subway back in 2004. I haven't seen this one for a while until last week at MacArthur Park's redline station:
I love how he snuck his name in on one of the tomb stones

Banksy's Rat and MySpace Lady
I haven't noticed this one in the local blogsphere, but I recently noticed this one on Banksy's site
(look at the outdoor section)on a page with photos of his stuff from his recent September visit:
Also, a few months ago this one popped up somehwere on Beverly Blvd:

Alot of people weren't sure if it was a legit piece by Banksy
. (I wasn't even sure myself.) -But a picture of it has been posted on his outdoor section of his site, therefore claiming credit.
