What's the best way to pay tribute to someone's life? How about by celebrating it with people through art? This week, outside London's Tate Modern, about 200 people gathered to pay tribute to the grandfather of DIY art, Tony Hart. Though that name may not sound familiar to us here in America, to those in the UK, he was known to have the "magical ability to produce competent, entertaining pieces of work at impressive speed and in an unpatronising fashion." In a television career that spanned more than fifty years, Hart touched the lives of more people than he could have ever imagined.
This children's television presenter and art enthusiast passed away earlier this year at the ripe old age of 83. He left a legion of fans who say they felt inspired by him. Organized through Facebook, over 200 models were created in honor of Tony Hart.
