Description

‘Blatantly Obvious’  is a public art project developed by Catherine Smith and funded by Arts Queensland through the Regional Arts Development Fund and the Bundaberg City Council in 2008. Specially designed and professionally made, these signs deliver humour, social commentary and thoughtful discourse.  The audience comprises of all walks of the community as they happen upon these works, not by design, but by accident.  Reactions vary with many questioning the ‘reality’ of the signs and the messages they impart but all will invite discourse and commentary about Public Art. In 2007 Catherine moved from Bundaberg where she had been teaching Secondary School Visual Arts at Bundaberg High School, relocating to Brisbane to take up the position of Senior Arts Teacher at Alexandra Hills State High School. In addition to undertaking fulltime employment as a teacher Smith also undertakes her visual art practice from her studio in Wynnum.
