Art is a diverse range of human activities and
the products of those activities.
To me, many things can be practical and artistic at the same time.....
The arch of a doorway, an iron gate, a bridge, a curved staircase, intricate crown molding on a ceiling, a window that catches the light "just so".....whenever I notice something like this it makes me smile and takes me away a bit.
In fact Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts. A perfect example of this to me is The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. On one of my recent visits, I kept having to remind myself it's not a gallery. Sure feels like one to me. A gallery exhibiting....."itself!"
While there I met Photographer, Michael Shaner, who was equally impressed. He was kind enough to share these photos with me to include in my video below.
