Today we celebrate art and recognize that it affects our “heart” (emotions).
Remember, the word “art” comprises more than just drawings, paintings, and sculpture. It includes music and literature, installation art and multi-media presentations, glassblowing and quilt making and jewelry making and other “crafts,” dance and drama and other performing arts. And much, much more!
Today, try to find time to go to a gallery, watch a performance, or make some art.
