The Art Of Everyday

Art is everywhere:
structured or unstructured,
amateur or accidental,
professional and circumspect,
confrontational or mundane,
curated and manipulated,
it is right there.
Art:
take the time, each day, to
take it in, wherever you are.
Question it,
appreciate it, consider all
the implications of
the expression of life.

Today I am off to see
THE ART OF BANKSY
at a pop-up gallery in Toronto.
This is the largest Banksy exhibit ever assembled, with more than 80 pieces on display (one was recently stolen as the exhibit was being set up – shame).
Of course I will take my camera, but between here and there I will surely notice something that will catch my eye. I may photograph it, or it may inspire a poem; you can never tell how art will affect you.
What I do know is that I will keep my eyes, and my mind, open to art.
Art reminds us where we are, where we have been, and where we are going.
Art is not only a reason to go somewhere, but a reason to feel something.
Enjoy the art of everyday life that surrounds us, consumes us, and makes each day more bearable.
