The Arts Adventurer is looking for art that doesn’t come with white walls and an audio guide. Join us on our arts adventures as we leave the museums and galleries behind and look for art out in the world.
We hit the streets, snoop around, and often just go into it blind, not knowing what to expect or what we’ll find. Scroll down (or select from the list of Arts Adventures above right) to choose one of our arts adventures and explore with us as we find creativity expressed in sometimes unexpected places.
When one thinks of art in Paris, it’s easy to focus on the art that hangs within the confines of a museum, whether it’s the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay or the Pompidou, among others. But we found plenty of artistic creativity in the streets of Paris, everywhere from Montmartre to Montparnasse, from the cemeteries to back alleys, and then some … a true visual feast that we want to share with you here.
In June, 2012, The Arts Adventurer went to Virginia, and poked around the shipyards of Newport News and then went looking for art in Sandbridge and Virginia Beach.
Our maiden voyage, on May 27th, 2012, took The Arts Adventurer to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, followed by a foray into Trenton in search of street art.
Our section of Random Arts Adventures includes unexpected finds that seem to pop up in everyday life, that aren’t based on actually searching for an Arts Adventure.
Coming soon: Arts Adventures in Cape Cod; finding art in a Revolutionary War Cemetery, art in the Ironbound district of Newark, art in the Catskills, and much, much more!
