Art is the City

In London, Art, The Art of Travel Spring 2015 by Michael Frazier2 Comments

In London, art is everywhere I look. From the Russell Square Hotel, to the Tate Modern, to the canal on my way to St. Andrews (a primary school I volunteer at).

J.M.W. Turner – Painting Set Free

In Art, London, The Art of Travel Fall 2014 by Evan PowellLeave a Comment
