Art and Seeking's Lizy Dastin

Lizy Dastin sees herself as a non-traditional thinker, scholar, and person. She’s an art historian who teaches college courses, and she’s also an entrepreneur and emissary to the world of Los Angeles street art. If you think of fine art as something you’d usually see in a museum, Lizy is determined to broaden your perspective to view street art as every bit as interesting and valuable as something in a museum. All you need to do is keep your eyes open and really see what you’re looking at . (No wonder one of her favorite books is Will Gompertz’s What Are You Looking At?) Growing up she wanted to be an author, but she’s shifted her storytelling from the world of words and fiction to the language of the visual.
