So after some time of reflection it turns out that what I'm looking for in the YIMBY Arts project is artworks that appeal to *all* people, regardless of income, race, religion, orientation, age, pet ownership preferences, etc. Basically the end-all-be-all for all artworks in all of housing history. Turns out that's really hard! How do I get myself involved in this stuff all the time I don't know, yikes.
But the next best thing we can do is try to find people who are at least *trying*. From there, maybe we can make some in-roads towards cooperation. There's a lot of political fracturing going on everywhere right now but Los Angeles' housing movement is still in its early stages so I think there's a chance we can make this work. Hard to find that combination of lofty and accessible but if there's a common thread somewhere it might just hold together.
What's the name of this style called? #UniversalistUrbanism
is probably the closest thing I can think of. Is this a thing? I can't really find anything on Google and it's certainly not a hashtag (we can start one, tho) but the internet doesn't have everything so it's probably floating around somewhere. The project is at the point where we need to start defining our aesthetic style more meaningfully so that we can better focus our efforts.
Any thoughts/suggestions/feedback/references for this stuff would be appreciated. Things are changing all the time and it's hard to keep up with everything but the more information we have the better.
