“Art allows you to operate outside an external system of values. You’re painting butterflies or writing words on eggshells — and for that period of time you recognize that you’re living outside standards that other people set. It’s freedom in the most profound sense.”

Beth Nugent, Asst. Professor of Writing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (taken from an SAIC mailer I received)

  1. An interesting conclusion about Art.

    As a visual artist I personally believe Art is the recording or documentation to use a better word of our personal experiences and observations for others to peek into.

    It allows our species to share and extend unique life memories for current and future human generations to remember them through.

    Art is very subjective just my view on it!
