Bookyard: Massimo Bartolini's Urban Garden Library

  • Posted by SHFT on June 5, 2012 in Art
  • If one gauges the success of a public art project by its ability to make people think, then this one from Italian artist Massimo Bartolini is definitely a win. Erected in Ghent, Belgium as part of TRACK art festival, "Bookyard" consists of a a set of twelve green bookcases installed on the grounds of a vineyard, mirroring the grapevine rows. All books are for sale and visitors can bring home a piece of the artwork by leaving a donation in a small box supplied by the artist and the libraries.

    The interactive exhibition runs until September 16, 2012.
