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.
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
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.
