What’s the big deal about art?
I’ve been asking myself that a lot lately getting ready for Open Studios Saturday and Sunday October 8-9. Why is it important to create art, to see art, to appreciate art?
I think art communicates who we are, what we are drawn to (and away from), what we are thinking, feeling, going through, touched by, confused by. It expresses things words can’t… and it’s direct. It can hit us right in the gut or the heart. Art creates questions. Touches and triggers emotions. Helps us feel alive and attentive to our environment. Helps us see beyond first impressions.
