The thing that has got us talking today is this cute new installation in Mumbai’s Queen of Suburbs, Bandra. Any true blue Mumbaikar will tell you that no matter how much we love SoBo (South Bombay for the uninitiated) our young hearts beat for that beautiful place by the sea called Bandra. It is the most happening part of the city and it is where all the action unfolds day after day, night after night. With some of the best bars, pubs and restaurants as also quaint villages (yes, villages!), Bandra is decidedly our most favorite place to be in Mumbai. And as of today, it seems, there is one more reason for us to love Bandra even more: this new art installation that every Mumbaikar will soon be dying to take a selfie with, we bet.

This ‘love Mumbai’ installation is by art collective St+Art who are known for their amazing work of transforming ordinary-looking streets to something out of a fairytale. Only recently we told you about their work in Delhi’s Lodhi Colony where they changed the face of the street into India’s first public art district. (ALSO READ How St+Art transformed Delhi’s streets) And now, they’ve moved on to Mumbai.
The installation was first displayed at Kala Ghoda Festival, the annual arts and crafts festival held in Mumbai. Since then they have been petitioning to make this installation a permanent fixture in the city. Today, politician Aaditya Thackeray declared the installation will find a permanent home at Bandra Reclamation’s promenade. This isn’t all, he said there will soon be another installation which will glow at night.
We’ve seen such installations in Amsterdam and New York and it was about time we had something like it in aamchi Mumbai too. So head to Bandra and don’t forget to send us a selfie with this cool, new installation.
