I photographed this as part of my “Art All Around Us” series.
Then someone said it was not art.
Well I guess I just have a different view on life.
This is something I saw when I went to visit art class of a good friend of mine. Bernie Rosage has tasked his students with an outdoor quilt project. They showed me one of the designs they were working on (more on that in another post) when I noticed this piece of design art.
Yes, it is a folded cafeteria table.
But I think it is great design work. Functional, colorful, serves a purpose, and is in the school colors as a bonus!
And, for me, that is art.
I hope you keep looking for the “Art that is All Around Us”.

In Woodstock NY they have a great piece of “Art All Around Us”.
A piece of the brickwork has a lizard in it!
Again, no real reason to do it that way…just to make it look cooler!
And as always for that I thank them.
If you find something that catches you eye, send me a picture. I would love to see it.

As you know I am always on the look out for the “Art All Around Us”.
Well I found another.
And I totally love this one!!!
I found this drain cover in Pittsfield Mass. It features a carving of a fish in the center, and then they continued with the cobblestone surround… just to make it nice. It appeared to be old, but I just don’t know.
Thanks to the guys and ladies of Pittsfield for their downtown revitalization and having such a beautiful piece of “Art All Around Us”
As always, I would like to see what you find around your world.

Claire and I are always interested in having art all around us. Even in the everyday things we use.
We were gifted a beautiful bowl by my brother and sister in law and I thought I would include it in my “Art All around Us” collection.
This one was make by Doug Navarra from New York State. It is highlighted with a carved rim. I would think you would agree, it is a piece of art.
And for that I am thankful to Navarra… and my brother and sister in law.
If you see art for the sake of art, send it to me, I would love to see it.
