Design and Art

The murals that bedeck the sides of the 50s era Bowl-a-Rama on Glencarin and Bathurst, in Toronto, have an eerie resemblance to the larger Barnett Newman work, of the same time.

Why is Newman art and Bowl-a-Rama design ?

(Newman interest in the kaballah would be useful here, the belief that words are powerful incarnation to meaning. Theory and not object make art–and the Bowl-a-Rama is constantly renewing, the murals change, the carpet changes, the font on the sign changes, so it becomes an athropology project. Newman will never change.)
