Art All Around You
Where ever I am I notice the art around me. It tells me a lot about where I am. Most recently, while taking my kids back to school shopping I was noticing the art in department stores. Most of it is advertisements for the brands and products the store is selling. Images of models wearing the clothes in a blown up black and white photograph. But some of it is thoughtful and presented in a curated way. Specifically, a certain department store's men's department. They have a curated wall with original paintings, drawings and prints all with a masculine tone. I loved it. So when you are out and about look around you for art. You may be pleasantly surprised.
"Man will begin to recover the moment he takes art as seriously as physics, chemistry or money."
