Some are bored by art museums, but they fascinate me. Room after room of history, adventure, and discovery. Raw human creation, timeless throughout human experience.

It’s easy to appreciate the beauty of the past, just as it’s too easy to miss the beauty of right now. But our creations, our art, will live on too. Even the most mundane will tell our beautiful story.

The Exchange

In minutes, she carves beautiful maracas. She sells us her art for $4 USD.

The Fort Point Arts Community in the Boston Seaport district hosted its seasonal open studios event this past weekend, during which the public is able to visit the otherwise private workspaces of the artists. Warehouses on the water, full of art, open for wandering. My brother and I decided to explore.
