Palabras de Azucar

Posted in Arte, summer times by Lalita on 24 July 2010

I like art.

I like bikes.

I like random acts of awesomeness.

I like PaperGirl

I come from the mentality that art should be affordable and for all. I think that is why I am so drawn to murals and colorful outdoor installments.

I follow a few street art blogs, and via Robots Will Kill blog I discovered PaperGirl-NY State.

PaperGirl is an organization which promotes art in a very unique way!
Rollable art is submitted-displayed and exhibited and then rolled up to go on a bicycle ride to be given out to people at random.
Nothing is expected from those who are chosen to get one of these rolled up masters.

Being a New(new)Yorker I have experienced the money side of the art world. I must admit, it makes me sad. Not only curators but also artist have fallen victim to the dollar.
I get it, I understand the hustle, I understand the price of living here. But at times I also wonder how things would be if expression could be made without having to put a price on it. What if an artist could share their message without muddying it with $.

Everyone should have access to art in some form. And who doesn’t like random acts of kindness? Random Free Art? BONUS!

It is still not too late to submit a piece! The deadline was extended to August 1st, 2010

Watch this and absorb the awesomeness that is PaperGirl!
