Art and Being Human

Art is part of our essence as humans, it’s part of what defines us. We have been creating art for tens of thousands of years, even though doing so was sometimes very costly in terms of human life, valuable resources, and time. We have created art even when we were suffering the torments of hell on earth. We have created art even in the face of serious physical handicaps. By the end of our discussion, we will achieve two ends: gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and what it means to be human; expand our appreciation for art as an element of ourselves, not just something for museums.
