Welcome to the Red-headed Art Child blog. I’m the Redhead, a quiet art historian/journalist who lives in Chicago and wants you to experience the art that moves me and this whole city. I’ve endured a lifetime of people not understanding why I chose to study art, or why I want to make a career of it, but it’s pretty simple. Art is my passion. It is full of emotions, stories, and endless possibilities. And most importantly, it is meant to be shared. I believe that art is for everyone, so don’t expect to find stuffy, boring arts writing that requires a dictionary to understand. This blog is a place for me to share my thoughts and emotions about the art I encounter, uninhibited by word count or editorial influences. No matter if your art knowledge is large or small, I hope I can enlighten and engage you with my musings, and encourage you to share your own art experiences.
Art is more exciting if you talk about it!
