Art doesn’t belong…





  1. The great thing about art is the discussion it starts.

    Don’t give the republicans a reason to close any more museums.

  2. wow. is this cartoon’s timing perfect…

    just got back from an arts festival where several artists would NOT let me twitpic their cool work with the world…

    i just don’t understand that mentality…

  3. Hugh,
    Art IS in your head. It doesn’t exist anywhere else. Not even in a museum.

  4. This is soooo relevant to my life. But if I hadn’t seen it (because it stayed in your head) I wouldn’t have dreamt there was anyone out there that “gets it”. Art is a double-edged sword (or brush or pen).

  5. Sometimes the art is in the comments.

  6. Art lives between two people. The medium is just the catalyst.

  7. I agree that art doesn’t belong in a museum.
    But instead of belonging in my head, it belongs out into the open. As long as it is in my head, it is no art. I think art is the act of getting creativity out of my head into the open. Express it in words, images, forms, sounds or any other means that enable others and me to relate to it.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
