Hanging art is a tradition that began in Japan in the 19th century.
There’s no way around it, art that hangs in public places is often extremely beautiful, even if it’s not the most impressive piece in the world.
But as art continues to grow in popularity, so do its detractors.
One of those critics is the National Park Service, which recently launched a new initiative to help educate visitors about the importance of hanging art, and to raise awareness about the history of art in public spaces.
The initiative will be called the “Hanging Art Exhibit” and will be presented at a series of events over the next few months.
“This exhibit will highlight the important role art plays in the preservation and protection of American public lands and waters, and how we can harness the power of the public to shape our shared national history,” the National Parks Conservation Association announced in a press release.
The NPS said it’s also inviting people to join in the fun, with the first exhibition to be held on April 17.
Each of the six exhibitions will feature art that is currently hanging in public, from traditional Japanese art to modern American works by artists like David Graeber and Joni Mitchell.
In addition, the parks will host a variety of events featuring artists and designers from around the world, including a performance by the New York-based band The Flaming Lips.
All the art on display at the exhibition will be free to view, and you can also bring in your own artwork.
“We know that our parks, monuments and buildings are the most significant cultural assets in the United States, and the preservation of these assets is critical to our national heritage and our democracy,” the NPS explained in the press release, adding that the exhibit will include artwork that will “remain in public view as long as it is not removed for commercial or other purposes.”
It’s the latest in a series in which the agency is partnering with other public art groups and museums to educate visitors on the importance and history of public art.
As a whole, the NPDC’s annual Hanging Art Exhibition has been an amazing success.
According to a recent report by the National Arts Council, the exhibition has been able to raise more than $2.5 million for parks and museums in the past decade, and has been viewed by more than 2.4 million visitors since its launch.
Hanging art has long been associated with Japan, but it’s only in the last decade that the trend has begun to spread around the globe.
According to the National Museums Association, the average number of visitors to art museums worldwide is now estimated at 1.5 people per museum.
According to a report from the Center for the Study of Art History and Culture, over the past five years, the number of art exhibits in the US has risen from 476 in 2013 to 1,631 in 2016.
While the exhibition might be the perfect time to start learning about the art that hung in the National Mall, it’s important to remember that the art in question isn’t really that great, and it’s even worse if you’re a tourist visiting the National War Memorial.
