THE IMPORTANCE OF ART IN OUR SOCIETY

Art is a part of our culture. It should be given importance by the people. It is the expression of our creative ideas and imagination. It has different forms such as the visual arts, sculpture, music, literature, theater, films, and other ways that artists choose as a medium for their craft. The important thing is that they are able to put their imagination and ideas into something tangible – although these are subject to other people’s comprehension and appreciation. And when the members of a society continue to do this, there is a collective psyche of a particular period or generation. Art transcends time. It transcends the artist who was responsible in its creation. It shatters barriers and goes beyond them to be able to share its message and speak of its meaning. Art rises above language, class, religion, gender, and other factors that seem to divide the world. Art brings people together. It elicits different reactions and emotions but everyone can agree that it moves them to think, to feel, and to act. Art is there to remind us of the values that we uphold. It makes us realize that we may all come from different walks of life but there are some things that are undeniably common to all of us – like love, friendship, and freedom. It reminds us that there are more important things in life. It makes us realize the importance of pursuing our passion and expressing ourselves. At the end of the day, we can say that art makes us a better person – by making us think profoundly, by making us feel deeper, and by making us act and do something other than not doing anything at all. Salute to all our artists out there. Thank you for expressing what we do not have the words to say.
