Why Art Matters
Write a brief (at least 250 word) response to the essay “Why Art Matters.” Actions Questions to consider as you respond to the essay: Did anything resonate with you about the nature of and need for art? Do you have any personal experiences with the arts, and have you seen how art can be a refuge during difficult or uncertain times? Why does art matter to you? And if you don’t think it does, how could you anticipate it mattering to you in the future? (Although, I imagine most of you listen to music and watch movies–at least; so I would counter that art does matter to you). How do you think a deeper understanding of the arts would affect your life?
