Today seems to be the day for posting childhood memory-inspired works of art! I am a firm believer in public art that serves to delight and inspire any viewer. Public art should appeal to the public, you shouldn’t need to be versed in art history or elements of design to appreciate and admire it. The Bubblegum installation of artists Merijn Hos and Renée Reijnders perfectly demonstrates the ability of public art to enchant and amuse.
The installation could be seen floating above Weerwater Lake in the Netherlands in 2010. Check out the websites of Merijn Hos and Renee Reijnders to see more images and what they’ve been up to lately.
