Serendipitous Art: Museum Shadow (June 28, 2015)

Shadows in a stairwell at the Aviation Museum at San Francisco International Airport looked like art to me. Serendipitous art, unintended art, found art.

Serendipitous Art: Tape on Paint (June 9, 2015)

A piece of tape on a graffiti and paint-covered metal surface--or the adhesive remaining where a piece of tape once was. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Found Collage (June 4, 2015)

Sometimes, between photographing something of interest and posting it here, I forget where it was I made the photograph, what it was that I photographed--an indicator of how abstract these bits of serendipitous art can be. Where was this? What is it? I'm not entirely sure, but I think it was a "found collage"--a window plastered over with stickers and painted. In any case, it looked like art to me.

Serendipitous Art: Abstraction on White Ground (May 31, 2015)

I saw this composition on the side of a metal box vending something near the Healdsburg Plaza. Unintended modern abstraction. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Memorial Girder (April 24, 2015)

I rarely go to Napa but had business there yesterday. Walking around the town a bit, I came across a memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks. I hadn't know it was there. Poignant, for obvious reasons, but the girders from the destroyed buildings were rather beautiful. Unintended art. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Gallery Shadow (April 19, 2015)

I saw this shadow in a Healdsburg Gallery today. Serendipitous art--art that will disappear when the exhibits are changed, art that disappears when the lights are turned out.

Serendipitous Art: Graffiti on Wood, San Francisco (March 31, 2015)

I saw this bit of graffiti on the street in San Francisco. I like the way the wood grain shows through the markings and becomes part of the design. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Architectural Detail with shadows (March 29, 2015)

A San Francisco architectural detail overlaid with shadows from a fire escape and then shadows from a sidewalk tree. Looked like art to me. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Graffiti on Iron (March 13, 2015)

Graffiti on an iron plate--some kind of cellar door, perhaps-- set into a sidewalk in Chico looked like art to me. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Scratched Garage Door, San Francisco (March 7, 2015)

Walking around the Sunset District in San Francisco today I passed a garage door that someone had scratched with a tool of some kind. Although surely unintended as art, the effect caught my eye. With a second look, you can see that someone has "erased" an underlying inscription--or, perhaps the perpetrator of the original graffiti didn't like the effect and scratched it out? Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Chalk and Sidewalk Seams (February 26, 2015)

Chalk on the seams in a section of sidewalk made this abstract composition. If it ever rains again, this small piece of ephemeral art will disappear.

Serendipitous Art: Sidewalk Old and New, Chico (February 20, 2015)


The sidewalks in downtown Chico are mostly asphalt or concrete, but, in places, pieces of the original stone sidewalks remain. They are made of a chiseled white stone. In some spots, adjacent sections of the old and new pavements make interesting compositions. Serendipitous art.
