Once again Barry Mcgee’s large tag wall stirs up controversy, this time in Sydney.  The City Council of Sydney is being accused of vandalism after commissioning McGee to be a part of the Art & About festival takes art out of the gallery setting and into the streets of Sydney.  Mcgee was given permission and $15,000 of local council funding to paint the two walls.  As usual, everyone has an opinion to whether or not it is actually “art”.  Watch the 7news report video here.
