The Arts Adventurer: an introduction and overview

from the Artsology series The Arts Adventurer

The Arts Adventurer is a special series by Artsology in which we look for art that doesn't come with white walls or an audio guide. There are several aspects to the Arts Adventurer: looking for (and appreciating) non-traditional art; learning to look and find art where you least expect it; and of course a little a bit of adventure for adventure's sake. Sometimes it involves heading out without a specific destination in mind and seeing what one can find of visual interest. We have a lot of new features in the pipeline, so make sure to check back often for new arts adventures!
