Surprise and Delight…that’s what happens when Art and Mother Nature collide.

I was minding my own business driving home the other day and as I passed a local town square park I came upon such joy and magic that presented itself in the form of crocheted and knitted covered trees…yes, you read that right.

This was a definite stop, park and check out situation!

So this was what I found out…in honor of National Arts & Humanities month (which was in October) there was a nation wide public art installation celebration to bring awareness of the importance of the arts in our community. This absolutely amazing art that I had the privilege of encountering was created by the Atlanta-based group of knitters and crocheters The Knitterati.

Art is for everyone and everywhere,

Mirror mirror on the wall…oops I mean mirror mirror on the entire house inside and out. True fact and not a typo!

Art is alive in the desert and man do I love art that invites you to participate in all its glory and splendor.¬†Entering this reflective ranch was as if I was dropped into a gigantic kaleidoscope…magical!

This architectural installation, Mirage, by Doug Aitken was part of the Desert X Exhibition and will remains until October 31st, 2017. A for sure must see if you find yourself anywhere near the Palm Springs area.

Check out the below link for more about Mirage.

okay so maybe it’s not a city street and more of a jungle road…

and maybe these aren’t city blocks filled with skyscrapers but wondering paths of sand and driftwood…

but this is art and street art is art…

and this art comes to you from the in the tropical town of Tulum.

street smart,
