Curators are underappreciated. Sure, youve heard of Jean-Michel Basquiat, but have you heard of the person who decided to put his art on the walls in the first place, helped him choose which paintings to show, or considered what color to paint those walls? Neither have we, but wed sure like to hear what shed have to say. At Regeneration: Intersection for the Arts Intern Artwalk, seven young people whove been studying the art of curation (among other subjects at the gallerys Leadership Training Program) walk you around to their streetside window installations at local businesses, and explain what theyve chosen to put there and why. If you love art, this rare type of event is a great, juicy treat; extremely fun and extremely thought-provoking. In this case, the work is the curators own, and the businesses have been chosen carefully for example, Ana Bedollas art uses live plants, and her exhibit appears in the windows of nature-artifact emporium Paxton Gate.
