Art with beauty, purpose, and… CANS

I’ve been thinking a lot about ART.  The meaning, the use, the purpose, the reality, the places it takes you.  Art isn’t as simply defined as it may have been centuries ago. As a matter of fact, I found this definition from Pilar Diaz regarding art.  “Any attempt to define art is an attempt to destroy it. No laws can define it. No medium can contain it. Not old idea or imitation survives. Art creates its own laws, ones of revolution and change. Art bears witness time and time again to the rebirth of itself. Art translates the language of the human experience because ART IS.”

What’s your definition of art??

Meanwhile, I really enjoyed a unique art exhibition using cans at Brookfield. As you might already know, Brookfield in Tribeca offers weekly / monthly features all around. You can read about other things I’ve been to there, such as their food court Hudson Eats and Le District. Last week, the giant art exhibition took place, featuring different cansculptures®  made by architects, engineers, constructors, and students from a charity called Canstruction. The structures are made entirely with cans!  Winners get chosen internationally and displayed. At this event, there were 29 cansculptures – too many favorites for me to pick.  At the end of the event, the variety of food cans are donated to local hunger organizations. Art with a purpose. love! 

Here were a few of my favorites from the weekend event:
