Is That Art?

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sometimes, it’s hard to tell what is and isn’t art.

Art In Odd Places is an outdoor event that features numerous art and performance pieces created by New York’s most creative folks.

The masterpieces are strewn along two-and-a-half miles of the Big Apple’s streets.

Passersby will be met with tours of manhole covers, paintings, projected imagery, and other artsy works, but may not even realize it.

Co-creator Ed Woodham says that with all the wackiness that’s usually going on along 14th street, where the event takes place throughout this month, it may be “hard to tell what’s art and what’s not.”

However, that’s the “wonderful thing” about the Arts In Odd Places event, because it gets people to notice the strange beauty they pass everyday.

He explains, “People encounter Art In Odd Places without realizing it. Hopefully we’ll remind them to re-assess their surroundings and look at the corner they pass everyday in a new light.”
