    I really do not understand this duality of

    human society. Men, throughout history, have always acted compulsorily in search of conquests, valuing possessions, money, industrial production, trade relations above all other values, the general scenario prevailing over the achievements and individual merits, which are left...

    Art in my opinion is

    that manifestation of experiences and beliefs it allows others to view the world in a different way to shed light on the dark and at times misunderstood. Art isn't just paintings and sculptures, it's words,foods customs it is life. Art for me is a window to the strange, to...

    Art Is Powerful

    I think if art were more important in our society, life would be a little better. More peaceful. I think people need to be more appreciative of creativity and design, and consider art to be more than a recreational activity, but as an outlet for human expression and communication...

    It Is Important

    Although my own work is not extremely popular and in demand, I still believe that Art is important in our society in the form of all of those millions of images all over the place that some gifted and talented (unknown) artist created.  It would be nice if every one of those...

    Part Of Life

    It's really sad in the world we live in today. People are lying, hurting one another, children are dying and everyone says they want to help but never try too. Also art is just as important as music. Just because Jay Z or Bieber can sell a hit album doesn't mean someone pouring...

    It Never Will Be And Never Was........

    Artists are considered social deviants because we don't fit into the one size fits all category. And society depends on conformity. Artists ask uncomfortable questions, defy tradition, challenge the status quo and make life inconvenient for bureaucrats. We are an unruly bunch...

    Kinda Confused But Still Support the Cause

    I think art is a HUGE part of our society! It's everywhere, all the time. Look how widely accepted tattoos are becoming; there are live music shows every night of the week, FESTIVALS every month! We have art festivals here, the White Light Walk every year, which is when all the...

    All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter.

    More important, no. More relevent and practical, yes. I wish art was something people could talk about using laymans terms and simple language, something that people could appreciate just for the sake of appreciating it. I like art, but do not love art, and do not wish to make it...

    It's Taken For Granted

    It seems the only people who really appreciate art, are the artists themselves. I mean of course everyone is an artist of some kind, and at some kind of level. But the people who are really into art, like drawing, music, painting, sculpture, drama, those kinds of things, are the...

    Art Builds a Soul For You

    Playing a musical instrument, making art, drawing, acting, singing -- all of these things help me to understand myself better, to understand other people better, and keep me alive in a spiritual sense. Something about art opens people's minds, teaches them new ways of seeing the...

    Because It Would Make the Society a Better Place

    all my youth i went to a art oriented school. So art has always been important in my life. I feel it makes human closer to their sensitivity and therefore closer to other's sensitivity. I feel Art gives tools to get to know yourself better, and therefore contributes to make...

    The Break

    There is a break, a crack in the wall. Just a small one, but enough to let in the light of others Though this is no relief. I built this wall to isolate myself from the horrors of the world. But the world is starting to tear it down. Right when I was feeling comfortably lonely...

    I really have no opinion on it.  Although I do think that people with REAL talent, such as art, writting, etc should be making mroe money than someone who plays golf and gets paid millions just because they can get a ball in a hole.
