I used to say, â€œJust because I donâ€™t play an instrument doesnâ€™t mean I canâ€™t live like a rock star.â€
Culturally, we expect people to live within some pretty narrow lines. If you live outside those lines â€“ in appearance, or demeanor, or life path â€“ you are quickly put into another box marked either, â€œEccentric,â€ â€œHomeless,â€ or â€œArtist.â€
But â€œLife as Artâ€ is more than just an excuse to shun the rules and run wild.
Lifestyle Art is rooted the art innovators of the last century. People like Duchamp & Pollack.
Each of these artists stretched the definition of art. To them, â€œArtâ€ was not an object.
Last time I went to a protest march was with my grandpa. I bet he would be protesting today.
I am not attending any marches this weekend, but I applaud those that are. I hope some people get their minds changed towards tolerance. More importantly, I hope the frustration of this situation doesn’t lead to more division. Compassion, not anger, is the only path to progress.
