art quote – gallenter

“Art isn’t merely a luxury hobby for rich gallery patrons, it’s a fundamental part of all human cultures, which has been with us as a species since at least the beginning of recorded history. The purpose of art is to draw our attention to that which is beyond our own individual experience. Storytelling lets us see into others’ lives, and composers and choreographers are able to convey profound emotions to people they have never met. Poets seed images and ideas. Visual artists transport us—to another place, another time, another mind, another universe. Art shines a light on important things we are otherwise unable to see. Only when our world is visible can we begin the work of change.”
