A rock decorated by Swedish artist Joakim Stampe keeps on eye on passerbys along the main pedestrian walkway in the center of Longyearbyen. Stampe is in Svalbard from June 14 to 22 as part of the Arctic Action live art festival, featuring five individual or group artists visiting intermittently and exhibiting largely improvised works at various locations. A presentation about such works is scheduled at 6 p.m. at Galleri Svalbard. Information about the project is at www.arcticaction.info. Photo by Mark Sabbatini / Icepeople.
