Art Consumes the Streets of Great Britain
There is art everywhere in England. According to The Guardian, the Art Everywhere Project intends to take works of art to 22,000 sites throughout Great Britain. It was started by Richard and Melinda Reed and their vision of art being everywhere has already found its way to over one thousand cabs and over two thousand buses.
The project has been touted as the largest art show ever created. For the next two weeks, there will be a total of 57 artworks on display throughout the country using such venues as billboards, subway stations, bus stops, and shopping malls. In addition to the many displays, people can use a cell phone app to obtain the history behind the work.
It appears as if it is a project without any agenda of any kind to promote. The project was launched through a crowd funding campaign which raised the necessary revenues to stage this massive artistic project and vision. The majority of the artists chosen to display their work are from England and all have agreed that art should be something that should be available to anyone at anytime.
Many of the works are from noted painters such as Lucian Freud, James Whistler, Francis Bacon, Cornelia Parker, and John Singer Sargent. Here in Chicago we are sometimes similarly surrounded by many amazing works of art. At the Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany we create timeless pieces that will influence others for years to come.
