Intervention on the run


Artblog correspondent Emily Regier dropped this tidbit into an email she sent us:

I…was jolted back into Artblog mode by a recent run in Fairmount Park. I am not much of a runner, but for a variety of reasons I attempted to try it out on this day. Finding it quite painful, I was determined not to quit, and persevered for (what at least seemed like) quite a time, until I happened upon this delightful graffiti ahead of me scrawled on the path: “Why are you running?” it asked. This was interventionist art (if I might call it that) that truly made me think – about what I was running from and to and for, and it restored my faith in direct artistic impact.

Emily last wrote for us on intervention art and Manybody at Temple Gallery
