Urban Aesthete is officially open. The purpose of this blog is to provide a daily dose of the arts, and a window into the creative processes of various disciplines.

The backbone of content will be an exploration of aesthetics in human-built structures (the “nature” of urban life) through photography. As we build momentum, there will be additional perspectives from visual artists, musicians, writers, film makers, dancers, and anyone creative excited by the Urban Aesthete vision. We are interested in how the city inspires us, and how that inspiration turns to artwork.

The meta-concept is for both contributers and readers to discover extraordinary details in ordinary noise, potentially through interaction with each other. Collaboration, mashing, and critique are all highly encouraged. While this concept is nothing new, we believe that it is fundamentally valuable, and as good a mission statement as any.
