Art and About

IF YOU go down to the woods (or Circular Quay)

today, you’re sure of a big surprise. Actually, you’ll need to wait until March 8, but then, 120 big bears, statuesque fellows, arms akimbo, their burly bodies all painted up in gay colours, will|line the popular Sydney tourist area. The Buddy Bears, each one representing a United Nations member state, so far have been on display in Berlin, Kitzbuhel (Austria), Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo and Seoul. From bear sponsorships and donations by visitors to the display, already more than $1.5 million has been raised. Definitely not bad news, these bears. For info:
