Art in December: See.Me Brings The Creativity Back

Today, prevalent news are news about technology. It is wonderful to see what humanity is capable of either by making something that we never knew we needed, or something that is extremely entertaining, or something that will make life of those in need a lot easier. However, sometimes we forget about art. Those two are not mutually exclusive, but in the electronic era, it is easier to cave in when you see a new gadget instead of a new piece of art. To help you in seeing the beauty in the art, here is See.Me.

The tag line for See.Me is to bring the creativity back to the real world. In 2014 it presented a fifth annual open call for art and photography called “Art Takes Miami” and winning entries will be posted today, December 1st.
