This year, SECA is celebrating its 50th anniversary in the Bay Area art scene with both the 2010 SECA Awards exhibition and Fifty Years of Bay Area Art retrospective.

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”.
