A Month of Appreciating Art
Not just one month, all the time we should look, see, and enjoy the work created by others, however I have designated the MONTH of September as a time to pay special attention to the art of others. It started with a trip out into the Black Rock Desert in Nevada to see the creative endeavors of many different people who install static, kinetic and drive-able art at Burning Man.

A few static displays:
The costumes worn by some of the participants lead to looking at a variety of clothing designers and one that particularly grabbed my attention was Manish Arora. Click on his name and take a look at wildly inventive clothing. An Indian fashion designer, based in New Delhi, he also has a flagship store in Paris. Great creative flair, rich with design and embellishment, his clothing is art.
This past weekend it was brought to my attention that one of my house guests is a great great granddaughter of Pierre August Renoir. So into the past to re-acquaint myself with the work of a painter who was one of the leaders of the development of impressionist style, who believed in beauty, color, light and shadow. Click on his name to read more about him and if you are interested there is a lovely film called Renoir that came out in 2012.
