While traveling, it felt as if other places provided more venues for public art than my hometown of NYC. Perhaps the high price of real estate prevents those with the space from being altruistic in that way. I imagine, the ROI calculations for a 400 square foot environmental art installation would not be as compelling as the numbers one could crunch to make the case for a McDonald Express of the same size. Or, perhaps I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings and my definition of art might be just to narrow. So taking Susanne’s advice, I’ve been trying to see my surroundings and document my daily doings with an “adventurers eye”; and “dang” if I didn’t come across some “art”!!!
