Art should be more accurately defined in the minds of the masses. It’s true definition is vast and broad, art is all around us, it is an aggregate of elements. Elements such as creativity, emotion, design, ingenuity, research, construction, development, ideas, inspiration to name a few. Everywhere you look, your home, your office, your city or your town, art is and has been a part of it. Even if you have never purchased a piece of original work from an artist in your life, an artist has had a hand you your environment.
These elements or components of art are all necessary to life as we know it. Creativity, ingenuity, research, development of ideas, inspiration are all essential to business and the future of business and our economy. Access to art is far greater than a quality of life issue, which of course it provides if allowed to flourish but the very components of art are integral human traits, they are skills that must be nurtured, developed and collected and brought to life in it’s many forms for the success of the individual as well as how the individual creates success as a component in our economy, a member of our society.
Study after study has come to light recently as we move forward from the technology boom suggesting that it will be the “creatives” that will drive business and our economy forward. We “creatives” have had a hand in it all along but it will be the creative problem solvers, the “way outside the box” thinkers that will propel us.
Who are the “creatives” ? Are you one of us? Could you have been, would you have been within the proper environment?
