Art Abandon

What is art abandonment, and how do you become an "abandoneer"?

"We all know that you don't have to be an artist to appreciate art, but I do believe that exposure to the arts is invaluable in helping everyone gain a deeper appreciation for what the artist contributes to society. Art abandoners are taking on that challenge to make a change, one piece of art at a time. For individuals who find the abandoned treasures, the arts come into their lives in a very direct and usually meaningful way. It doesn't matter if they never went to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa--the art came to them! And even if only for a fleeting moment, they were reminded of the way art can touch lives." --Andrea Matus deMeng, The Art Abandonment Project
