The View from a Drawbridge

The random musings of a bridgetender with entirely too much time on her hands.

More Murals

The View from a Drawbridge

For those who read my blog regularly, you know my love of public art. I even have a Public Art Lovers Facebook group that you’re very welcome to join. I’m endlessly fascinated by the variety of ways that artists express themselves. I genuinely believe that art increases one’s perspective on the world. Learning to see things through more than one lens is nothing but a positive. You can’t be narrow-minded if you look at things from a variety of angles.

The more fascist a society is, the more heavily regulated its art becomes. So I tend to look at the number of quirky murals in a city as a sign of how politically healthy the residents are. Art is a powerful thing. Art can and should be freedom.

I also happen to be addicted to Pokemon Go. The thing I enjoy most about it is that I get “postcards” from players all around the world. Often these postcards relate to the art in their area. So I get to enjoy art from places like Germany and Taiwan and Brazil and Australia from the comfort of my COVID-free home.

All this art gives me hope for our future. So, without further ado, here are some Pokemon Go postcards that I have received recently. Enjoy!

Enjoying my view? Then you’ll enjoy my book! http://amzn.to/2mlPVh5
