1. TEACHES US HOW TO RESIST FORCES THAT MUTE OUR LIGHT. Art shows us how to resist forces that teach passivity and acquiescence.
2. EXPRESSES IDEAS that can’t be expressed any other way.
3. TAKES US SOMEWHERE. We’re moved beyond where we were a moment before.
4. CREATES NEW WORLDS. Art allows us to enter places that can’t be known on the surfaces of life.
5. INSPIRES AND RENEWS. When we see beauty in a work of art, we see hope.
