You Call That Art?

One of my new life dreams is to own an art gallery. I'll add that to the list after "write and illustrate a children's book," and "get recognized on as a cast member."

This past week I explored LA's Downtown Art Walk. On the second Thursday of every month from noon to 9pm, the Art Walk welcomes people into some of the city's best galleries, museums and art venues for free. I spent a few hours roaming the various galleries, and thoroughly loved the entire experience. The art ranged from the excruciatingly pretentious (i.e. one exhibit featured a three-inch piece of rope nailed to a blank wall) to the thought-provoking and inspiring.

In any case, it was just refreshing to be surrounded by an array of creative expression and voices. I want to make more space for art in my life.

  1. You should talk to Jennifer and Jenny Hall about art. Get together, write or draw or otherwise create. More fun with other people.
