Metro Station Art Gallery
Yesterday in the Tahrir Metro Station (known as Sadat), there was a public art exhibit with hundreds of drawings, painting, and photographs hanging throughout. (I did not have my camera—argh!) And there were some poster tributes to the martyrs included as well. Some of it was revolution-inspired, but not all of it. And people were stopping and looking; it was another impressive scene that seemed to be very thoughtfully organized. I found myself inspired by the diversity and breadth of the initiative in its reclamation of public space.
