Time and again, art has been used as a way to open people's eyes and minds from the everyday stupor they live in as they cycle through their strongly instilled routines; Word Of Mouth by RAE is one of these instances. It takes the common corner store and converts it into a full-fledged art gallery. What makes this truly inspiring is the fact that sculptures and paintings are placed alongside such items as bread, beans and lotto tickets, which are still for sale.
Located in the East Village of New York, pieces from Word Of Mouth by RAE are also on sale. They can be purchased by the gallery worker, who also doubles as the cashier. Running until November 16, 2013, it is open Thursday to Saturday.
