Kansas City Mayor Sly James got some backlash recently when he suggested spending city money on installing closed circuit surveillance cameras in high crime areas.
The ACLU were among groups complaining of invasion of privacy. “Big Brother Watching You” was one blog headline. How much we are being watched as a society is the subject of an intriguing new exhibit going on at the H&R Block Artspace.
“On Watch” explores the culture of surveillance through the lens of six international artists and runs through March 31st at the H&R Block Artspace, one block east of Main on 43rd Street. Admission is free.
