The “Art Of Everything” School

” The Orange County Regisert’s new arts columnist writes that art is everywhere: “Whether we realize it or not, art is all around us. From the purple, inflated gorilla grinning atop a Dodge dealership along the Garden Grove (22) Freeway to murals in downtown Santa Ana, Huntington Beach and Laguna to the big, red ‘A’ that lights up after an Angels win, aesthetic images surround us. The trick is taking the time to see. We may think of some of these as eyesores more than art, and we may bemoan the lack of ‘real’ culture here in Southern California, Orange County in particular. But the truth is, the rest of the country – and the world – looks in our direction when they talk about the cutting edge of artistic and visual production.”
