So, what would the world look like without artist?
Try and think of all the things we take away if we say — that’s it no more art, no more artist? What is it that we have already that we overlook and do not appreciate if it were not for the sake of art? Is design art? Is the music we listen to art? The clothes we wear have any fashion aspects that are as a result of the labor from fashion artist? How about the house you live in or the furniture in your home, or the car you drive any artist involved? We are viewing pages on a Website right now, Don’t tell me an artist might have something to do with that? Perhaps we take too lightly the fact that artist are a society of high producers of our image of the world we live in? I bring this topic to mind as we hear so much about budget cuts in schools and the first thing they want to cut is art. Why? Do we just destroy what we don’t understand? Is that the non-artist way?
Perhaps the organizations deciding to make these cuts could use some artist on their boards of directors to come up with creative ways to address this easy way out.
