    So the LRT project has a budget for public art. (Let me be clear: AS IT SHOULD.)

    And one of the people selected to make art for them is… someone who got nabbed for passing off photographs as his that weren’t his when he did public art for Calgary’s LRT. And his concept for Ottawa is pretty much identical to the concept in Calgary.

    Cancel the commission. Give it to an Ottawa artist who hasn’t soiled themselves.

    I almost “soiled” myself when I read the article about this unauthorized use of other artists’ works.

    We had a beautification project in my little town and the town used local art students. Organized the thing through the school and it was wonderful.

    Probably cost a whole lot less too! Plus I can imagine the thrill for the kids to walk by their work on display.
