MONA

I had my first visit to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) in Hobart yesterday. It's not public art (being privately owned and a gallery), but I thought I'd post a few external images which are at least a little public. You enter across a tennis court, which is a whimsical touch that I like. And it looks fantastic reflected in the mirrored entry foyer. Nearby is a life size, rusty steel cement mixer by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye (Cement Truck, 2008). Inside was an exhibition of a lot more of his works, from tatooed pigs to machines that poo.
