Arts Purpose?

What problem does art solve?

Does it need to solve a problem?

Have we confused “art” with “product”?

Does art help us become aware and bring clarity to real life problems? 

Is it just entertainment? An escape from reality? 

Is it abstract education? 

Is it an extension of ourselves? 

Do we create to help others see we are not alone?

Does art become the thing we can point people to, so we protect ourselves as humans?

Judge the art, not the human?

Does art remind us that the world is not black and white but is complicated, messy, and this is ok?

Can art make us less selfish, less “Me” and more “We”?
