Art is a powerful form of expression not only for the artists who create it, but also for those who own it. Art allows people to express their individuality, and to represent deeply held beliefs, feelings, convictions or philosophies in socially (and visually) redeeming ways.
Art encourages people to ask questions, to take brief moments out of our busy lives to reflect on ideas other than how to make more money faster or how to get over on the competition.
Art improves quality of life. All you have to do is think about the difference between a room with bare walls and one with walls full of art.
Art inspires people to think about and even visualize ways that life might one day be better than it is now.
Art stimulates the expression and interchange of thoughts, feelings, and ideas among total strangers who might never otherwise say a single word to each other.
Children are fascinated with art. Art makes children ask questions, encourages them to fantasize and imagine, and expends their perceptions of reality. Art teaches children how to be creative and have fun with life.
Art transforms and personalizes the places where we live and work. Art can evolve lifeless interiors– homes as well as offices– into unique, beautiful and engaging environments.
An original work of art is not only visually appealing, but it also communicates the personality, abilities, creativity, inspiration, attitudes, and at best, the brilliance and genius of the artist who created it. And people who own art are able to experience and be uplifted by these qualities on an ongoing basis.
An original work of art reflects, enhances and even magnifies the personality of the individual who owns it.
Art attracts attention on global as well as personal levels. An impressive or extensive personal art collection can be likened in microcosm to that of a great museum, and certainly increases the esteem of that individual among his or her peers. In fact, many of the great personal art collections end up in museums.
Art makes people proud to live, work, and play where they do. They point to their museums, public monuments, and cultural institutions with pride.
Art is environmentally friendly, energy efficient, and easy to maintain. It does not increase global warming, use fossil fuels, or need to be serviced on a regular basis, and it’s certainly not just another expendable destined for the landfill.
