5 Weird and Wonderful Ways to Experience Art


5 Weird and Wonderful Ways to Experience Art

Though art can be found in the most unlikely of places, sometimes the most unique art experiences can be had by seeking out specific locations or events. Here are five weird and wonderful ways to experience art:

1. In the Darkness: While many art experiences take place during the day, some of the most unique and atmospheric ones happen at night. For example, London’s Hayward Gallery has a “Late” series of events where visitors can experience art in a whole new way after the sun goes down.

2. Underwater: If you’re looking for a truly unique art experience, why not venture underwater? That’s exactly what you can do at the MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) in Cancun, Mexico. This one-of-a-kind museum features over 500 sculptures that have been submerged in the nearby waters, providing a fascinating new way to view art.

3. On the move: While most art experiences involve viewing art in a single, stationary location, some artists are now creating “mobile” art experiences that can be enjoyed while on the move. For instance, French artist Olivier Ratsi has created a series of GPS-guided art walks that allow people to explore a city in a new way, following a route that leads them past various artworks and interesting landmarks.

4. In the sky: If you’re looking for an art experience that will really take you to new heights, why not check out some of the many “ sky art” installations that have popped up around the world in recent years? These large-scale artworks are often best viewed from above, making them the perfect way to add a touch of whimsy to your next airplane or helicopter ride.

5. In your own backyard: Sometimes, the best art experiences are the ones that are right in your own backyard. Next time you’re feeling creative, why not venture outside and see what art you can find in your own neighborhood? You might be surprised at the hidden treasures you discover.
