Guerrilla Curators is a group of young females spreading a message of equity and equality for artists everywhere. They are creating a series of flash art installations on their school campus to let their peers know that beauty doesn't last forever and that they should cherish it (and the artists who create it, regardless of gender, ethnicity and...) while it lasts.
Art has and always will be subjective, but what people tend to forget is that a lot of art does not last forever. One can look at a mural, several years old, and see the paint chipping underneath the thousands of scratches made by bags and nails. More often than not, graffiti will plague the beautiful work of art and the entire wall will be covered with a bland layer of paint. A painting on a canvas panel will slowly decay as it is submitted to art shows and galleries and entered into contests; the corners will cave in and the paint will flake off with every touch of a finger and every time it slips from someone's fingertips and onto the cold, hard ground. The purpose of flash art installations is to beautify an area with something as delicate as a bouquet of flowers. People are allowed to take pieces as they wish, spreading the message that beauty cannot last forever. And just like art, great artists do not last forever either, which is why people need to appreciate them, regardless of their race, age, sexual identity, status, or gender. It should be known that females are capable of creating art just as good as any other artist. A letter on a birth certificate should not dictate the importance of the person or of the artwork created by them. For years minorities have been silenced and only now are they allowed to have a voice. Art is a way to let individuals express themselves and their views and silencing them because of their beliefs or simply because of who they are, defeats the purpose of creating art altogether. We, as people, need to recognize the equality and humanity of everyone.
