Rebecca has also sent us something Alfred Stieglitz once said. Here is part of it:

“Art cannot be contained behind the walls of stately palaces, posh galleries or antiquated museums. Art is not the sole domain of private collectors.”

  1. Thank you, Resa, for creating a place where we can share the amazing world of street art. You have opened my eyes to a new understanding and a fresh perspective on this art form! And speaking of quotes, here is one that you will appreciate!

    “Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.” Banksy, Wall and Piece

    I look forward to every one of your posts!!

    1. Lol… Love the quote!
      Rebecca, Thank you so very much for sending us this wonderful mural. It is a real joy for me to see what is going on with street art in other parts of Canada & around the globe. I am honored that you enjoy the posts & hope you will find another mural to send us one day.
      Also, I admire your thorough research. You do an amazing job on both of your blogs, and have shared that ability here with us as well.
      Cheers to you! xo

      1. You have encouraged me, Resa to “carry a camera.” I will let others carry the paint can. Thank you again for featuring James Knight’s mural on your blog. He is truly amazing.

  2. OK, this is my all time favorite!!! It’s so very beautiful and it does represents the ethnic diversity of Vancouver area, people of all colors sharing the same wall as we should share everything else too equally in real life. Great message! Thanks for sharing this master piece! xoxo

    1. I love this masterpiece as well.It does hold fabulous message, and It’s so great that Rebecca has shared it with us! Very insightful comment, Eva! xoxo

  3. Rebecca did well, Resa, to find such a fascinating art piece. I also have you to thank for introducing me to ‘wall/street art’. I now see it almost everywhere I go!
    Here’s hoping all is well with you.. xoxoxo

      1. This is true, Resa; even in the regional areas (which is where I now live) there are some wonderful examples. I now have a smart phone (which I love and wonder how I did without) so taking images is now more a possibility. If I’m inspired to, I’ll take a few snaps and send them to you… xoxoxo

  4. How to put into words the emotions this post wrought? Resa, powerful post and the art is absolutely something we ALL need to absorb. Thank you, dear friend, for caring passionately for the art that you do and bringing it here. ALL of us need to remember the Native American. ❤

  5. Resa / Rebecca: The art and the photos are outstanding. I like how the window was not an obstacle to the art but became part of the art. Top it off with Stieglitz and Banksy quotations and you have the perfect post. Thanks.

  6. What a great mural! The next time I am on the mainland (have to take a ferry to get to Vancouver from where I am) then I will take a look 🙂 Thumbs up to Rebecca and Resa – you both are such beautiful souls! ❤

Speak your art mind!
