If you are absolutely convinced that there is nothing new and inspiring to see from where you're standing, then maybe it's time you travel down unfamiliar paths.
In the last two days I've spent quite a bit of time in one of Calgary's most artistic neighbourhoods: Ramsay. There, I had brunch with friends at The Fine Diner and finally sought out Dennis Oppenheim's Device to Root Out Evil. Kicked out of Vancouver for obstructing the view and for being blasphemous, the sculpture found it's new home right here in Calgary. Which, in all honesty, completely fascinates me. I always though of Vancouver as a much more liberal, avant guard kind of place.
A stop by Burns Visual Arts Society and a gluten free snack from Cafe Rosso on hand, I am off to enjoy this gorgeous new-to-me neighborhood in my self-made "hollie" sweater. Because I'm starting to think that clothes, just like a canvas, are much more rockstar with holes on them.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
