4 Of The Best Public Artworks From Around The World

ScatnStyle:  Berlin Gallery

Public artwork allows an artist to share their love of art with the common man. Here are four of the best public artworks from around the world that you don’t need to pay to view.

East Side Gallery (Berlin, Germany)

In many ways, the Berlin Wall represented the worst of humanity. Running through the city of Berlin, the wall divided a nation, separated families, and plunged East Germans into a Communist abyss. When the wall came down in 1990, it was only fitting that some parts of the wall that remained standing be converted into an art gallery. At the heart of modern day Berlin lays a 1.3 km long stretch of the Berlin Wall, featuring art work from over 100 artists. Although a lot of the work was vandalized during the 90s, restoration specialists have ensured that the East Side Gallery continues to be a source of inspiration and hope for future generations.

David Calfo : Salvage Artist

I have always been fascinated, truly fascinated, by the art that can be created out of other objects. I didn't know the term for it, necessarily, but I knew when I saw it. Hailing to us from the wonderful industrial city of Pittsburgh, comes Mr. David Calfo, giving us his own brand of salvage art and teaching this musician what the meaning of "salvage art" is and a bit of the process of the art.

I am so thrilled to be able to feature David Calfo and his salvage art, a mixture of art, history, and memorization of the past, in Mr. Calfo's creation in the present, for the future to enjoy and remember with us. Read and learn with me.

Jennifer Schultz : Art Within

I like how Ms. Schultz puts it, and I agree that this is true for me, as a musician. She says, in referring to art, "I don't feel one decides to be an artist. It is something inside of you that needs to be released." Very well put! That is the essence of the art within, desiring to be expressed, desiring to be released.

From the sounds of things, Ms. Schultz found ways to express this art, from a young age, even if/when it was not particularly pleasing, referring to her choice of canvas. Please, read with me, and learn about Ms. Jennifer Schultz.
