Everyone has their own idea of what is and isn't art. Sometimes I see something in a museum and wonder why, and sometimes I see something in a museum and just love it. I love paintings and clothing exhibits. Depending on the models, I like miniatures, too. I love mini-recreations of historic buildings and scenery, and dioramas that show how people lived. Things like that fire my imagination and being the visual person that I am, I can write a story about something like that in no time.
But, art is more than the mediums I
prefer. Music is art. Dance is art. Movies are art. Books are art. Even sports can be art. It is all in the way we view life. For some people - life is art.
So, on this Fat Tuesday, I salute ALL artists, wherever they are and whatever they do. This world needs them.This Day in History: On February 20, 1872, what well known art museum opened its doors for the first time?
