Understanding art part 1: Art isn’t a picture hanging in a museum

There isn’t enough shelf space in all the museums of the world to hold the amount of art that is available to us.

Yet, we continue to insist on defining art as only paint on a canvas that we can hang on a wall.

Museums don’t define art (or good art for that matter), we do.

Art is anything we do as a human that brings emotional labor to make a connection.

No one chooses to go to the DMV, we have to go to the DMV. If you can find a DMV clerk that is delighting the people around her, I can show you an artist.
