“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.”
Really Andy?? When I first read this I blatantly agreed- sure people don’t need art, that’s why artwork isn’t selling much these days. People have other more important things to spend their money on, like housing and food.
But then upon second look and read of this quote I questioned myself.
Of course we NEED art and creativity – it makes up our soul.
When we don’t have art in our lives we are missing something, there is a hole there. It should be filled with canvases of color, that bring joyful memories or thought provoking conversations.
In fact, we NEED more art, more artists, more creative people who are not confined to doing things the way we have always done them.
Let’s make sure we bring up the next genreration so that they appreciate not only the arts but the Artists themselves.
What are your thoughts on this Thursday??
