What makes art, art? And what makes an artist, an artist? Is it the performance, the creation, or the expression? Sign Spinning is often compared to a performance art because the flow and tricks are expressed by the spinners unique sense of style. So is sign spinning an art? To Grand Central Art Center’s resident artist Yumi Janairo Roth, that answer is Yes!
Last weekend at GCAC, AArrow Sign Spinners got to be a part of Roth’s interactive, experiential art project called SPIN. Sign spinners would be one of the main features in this exhibit, advertising and entertaining in downtown Santa Ana driving attention to the rest of the exhibit. Look out for more collaborations with AArrow and GCAC. See, sign spinning is art!
