I watched the block and they watched me. I saw a mother getting off the train at the same time each day with her child, a little girl wearing a pink plastic backpack. I saw a construction worker returning home from work. I saw that dancing lady I’d seen the first day I’d gone to the storefront. Each time she walked the block in a different state of lucidity. I saw kids come and go, families boarding the train, people delivering packages. I saw a neighborhood with its daily routine of life and found myself excited to share art with people who might not necessarily go to openings and museums.
I’ve always wanted to make art less intimidating, more accessible, a part of life.
