Art helps create cultures and mold human beings. Without art, our society would not have: history, folklore, communication, invention, empathy, government, health, science, storytelling, theater, news, movies, personal growth…pretty much everything we take for granted. Art informs intelligence and is a necessary vehicle for cultural progress and the documentation of humanity. Its influence spans the vast extremes and expanses of night and day, of passion and distaste, of enlightenment and confusion. Art, if we’re smart, will always exist in the fabric of our lives.
