Art Around the Corner

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016 at 2:31pm Shell Admin St. George

If you know me, you know I love art and am fascinated with artists. When you look at a piece of art you are looking into the soul of the artist. You are seeing their thoughts, feeling their emotions. Sometimes when you look at a full collection you can see their moods. It just amazes me how someone can put so much of themselves into their work and then sell it to complete strangers. Some strangers not even getting the purpose of the piece. True emotional release has to occur when that happens.

Yesterday, I discovered something unique about St. George, UT. Art around the Corner.

Art around the corner is a not for profit organization that works with local (sometimes world known) artists. These artists, mostly sculptures donate a piece of art work for the city enjoyment.  These sculptures are strategically placed throughout the down town area, commissioned for 1 year.
