After Going to the National, Everything Looks Like Art
Going to the National Art Gallery on a snowy Sunday afternoon can affect how one sees the world afterward. Everything tends to look like Art! For example, This view of a couple of people walking down a corridor looks like a mid-Twentieth Century minimalist painting - or something like that!
This endless-seeming scaffolding which surrounds the part of the National where they are making repairs - seen from inside the Gallery looking out a window - looks like some elaborate, participatory sculpture. Very post-industrial!
In the evening, walking down a snowy Ottawa side street, one can appreciate the blue and white and grey landscape, like something by an impressionist painter. Beautiful!
