Art is impressive. No matter what form. Every time I witness something new I am always reminded of the vastness of the human mind and how much we do not know. Are we the only species that creates art? The only ones who draw pictures and write words to try and convey some internal struggle or emotion with the rest of mankind? We all have this urge at some point in our lives and for those of us who are not proficient in the ways of creating our own art we seek out those who can and cling to the things they have created as though they were our own. Favorite songs that convey how sad or happy you are. A painting that has imagery that moves you in a certain way. We take these things and adopt them into our being.
Art is a very important piece of the human puzzle. Every now and then I believe we should take some time out of our busy lives to sit and take in all the art and human creation around us. Take some time out to go to a museum and instead of just looking try to find a connection, try to discover why the artist made a particular piece. What does it make you think of or feel? Its amazing, some of the self discoveries I have made by just examining a piece of work and figuring out why I interpret some in different ways than others.
Here are some great local events coming up:
