Copenhagen in 7 Hours of Daylight: City of Art


National Museum, Copenhagen DenmarkOne of the intriguing aspects of travel, in my book anyway, is discovering the artistic sensibilities of a city. Separate and apart from the tourist attractions, historic buildings and popular sites, the art of an individual city can be found in many ways.

It is true, of course, that art can always be found in the local museums…

However, my favorite forms of the artistic expression of a city are found just by walking down the street…

Sometimes interesting art can be found (even if it is puzzling) in store windows…

Some cities can even make an old relic into art…

And sometimes, to find the art in a city, you only have to walk into McDonalds…

For my part, it doesn’t matter how the art is discovered, as long as it is found.
