Eighty feet long by twenty-three feet high, Julie Mehretu’s “Mural” dominates the entrance lobby of Goldman Sachs’s new steel-and-glass office building, in lower Manhattan. Its abstract forms and high-velocity, intersecting colors accompany arriving employees on their long walk from the security turnstiles to the elevators, and catch the eye of passersby on the corner of Vesey and West Streets.

It’s also about cultivating a public to feel invested enough to keep something. Something that’s meaningful to daily life.

15 artists collaborate to turn the interior of London Royal Children’s Hospital into as fun and colourful a place as a hospital can be. Despite being limited by the fact that hospital environments need to be easy to clean, the artists were still able to use vinyl, ceramics, wood and even rugs to liven up these hospitals, each approaching the wards they decorated with their own unique style.
Two LOVE HATE welded metal sculptures are on display at one of the most prominent spots in the cityscape, the Siegestor. The sculptures, by Mia Florentine Weiss, with their red-orange rusted surfaces are in marked contrast with the aged stone of the looming Victory Gate. The ambigram sculptures can be read by one side as LOVE, the other as HATE. They fit in perfectly with the program of the Faust Festival Munich, which at the same time draws its way through the state capital as an artistic leitmotif.
LOVE HATE not only stands for the multi-layered ambivalence of this most humane of sentiments in Goethe’s most famous drama but also gains new meaning in the 100th year of the end of the World War I as a worldwide symbol of peace in Germany, transforming hatred of the world into love.
The location of the two LOVE HATE sculptures to the north and south of the Victory Gate could hardly be more ideal – the inscription tells: THE VICTORY IS WONDERED, DESTROYED FROM WAR, TO MAKE PEACE.[/rs_special_text]
