Complete this sentence:
Everyone is a(n) _______________ .When we asked visitors to fill in the blank at the Nasher on Sunday, Jan. 18, during Family Day, we got some great answers.  Some examples:

 

Everyone is a musician.
E
veryone is a teacher.
Everyone is a dancer (in training.)
Everyone is a part of earth.
Everyone is a star.
Everyone is a learner.
Everyone is a friend.
Everyone is a builder.
Everyone is a human.
    
and, of course,
Everyone is an artist, even bears.

We used the statement “Everyone an artist.” from artist Joseph Beuys as the jumping off point.  This idea serves as a backdrop for the current exhibition Escultura Social: A New Generation of Art from Mexico City.

Of course, some great drawings accompanied the word art, and I must admit that I have a favorite. 


The illustrations to accompany “Everyone is a musician” are superb, and I can’t help but smile when I think of artist bears.

Check out our next Family Day on Sunday, March 22, 2009, 12-4PM.
