Random Acts of Culture™
Posted by Dec 19, 2011 2 comments
Throughout the country, many performing groups have taken to public forums to display Random Acts of Culture™ (supported generously by the Knight Foundation) covering all art forms including music, dance, and theater.
Just a few weeks ago, the Arts & Science Council of Charlotte captured this dance performance from their local airport:
But there are so many other examples to choose highlight including a string quartet at an outlet mall in Georgia:
...an aria in a Philadelphia library:
...and another dance in the San Jose International Airport:
During a time of year full of stress and worry that should be more enjoyable and pleasant, these performances can provide that moment of clarity for a weary traveler, frantic office worker, or busy shopper.
Just a few more example of the power of the arts.
I love when people are spontaneous with Art. It is so important for artist to create things that can be enjoyed and shared with as many people as possible. If art is never seen, what good does it do? Street Art, Random performances, and spontaneous creation are the best way to share expressions. Something as simple as a street performer can put a smile on my face any day.
Thanks for the comment and the link!
