I moved into NYC a little bit more than 3 years ago in October 2016 but I didn't have much of an appreciation for art when I first moved here. It took some time to grow on me but around 2 years ago my appreciation for art finally did mature and I have taken a lot more of a liking to it over these past 2 years.
I think the atmosphere and culture of New York City just makes it almost impossible for someone's enjoyment of art to not grow on them when they live here whether they consciously realize it or not. But I would say that my appreciation really started when I decided to visit all of the museums around me and there are so many good ones here that NYC is known for.
I have taken a lot of pictures over the past 2 years of paintings, buildings, sculptures, designs, and natural landscapes here in NYC and in other places that I've traveled to. I decided to put all of those pictures together into a collage and share them here with you.
