ART COMMUNICATES ideas and shares information. It speaks in a global language that bridges cultures. Art allows us to share past stories, current thoughts and future visions without saying a word.
ART MOVES US, changing the way we think and feel. It increases our reasoning skills, increases our openness to new and different experiences. Art motivates, soothes, enlivens, relaxes, inspires.
ART CONNECTS US, giving us a reason to come together and share an experience. It is a collective activity, unifying the artist, the performer, the collector, the art enthusiast … all of us.
ART TELLS OUR STORY, chronicling individual and collective lives and experiences. It protects cultural values, beliefs, and identity. Art preserves a shared history, yet encourages independent exploration.
ART TRANSCENDS TIME as a basic human behavior. The world over, art has been instinctively made and shared by children and adults, throughout our known history. It is a natural, intrinsic part of who we are.
ART LIFTS US UP, reinvigorating the tired, rehabilitating the wounded, reviving the neglected. It whispers and shouts, it enlightens and informs, it shocks and thrills, it calms and energizes.
