Spring has arrived, get out there and see some art!

Finding inspiration by seeing art in a book, watching a video, camping out here on Sketch Theatre (or any of the other awesome art sites and blogs available) is great, but if you don’t get out once in a while and let the breeze hit you in the face so you can stand before an admirable artists’ blood, sweat, agony, joy and tears … well then you’re not sharing in the full experience. Here are my picks!
