Who Says You Can’t take it with you?

This painting on the side of a building in Schwabing is interesting enough – zodiac connections between the stars, some sort of character out of the bible breaking through the sun and the moon, etc. What really caught my attention though was that someone had packed a suitcase for him. It was very clear that no one had set the suitcase down momentarily. Rather, it was set out for this world traveler. I suppose if you have several galaxies to visit, it’s a good thing they packed light. There is a lot of this around Munich – public art that is not explained, but somehow appreciated.

Public art is a truly wonderful addition to any city. We are certainly richer for having the experience via public art that, if held privately, would be missed by so many.
