What Is Art?

by ©Peggy Gabrielson

Murals the controversy of what constitutes as art continues.

Is street art considered advertising? Questions of it being illegal as ordinances in some cities.

Expression of ones imagination. We all have our opinions of what defines art. Our museums have many styles of artists works on canvas. Billboard or mural… art is in the eye of the beholder after all.

Why can’t we make issuance that all advertising is done in this style. Murals on buildings brightens up an otherwise dreary blighted street. I would rather look at a mural than a billboard any day, wouldn’t you?
