“Art is everywhere:  on street corners and buses, in parks and restaurants, on your computer and cell-phone screens.  Art is a visual story of what being human is all about, told in many forms and with many voices.  “Understanding art will teach you to react constructively to new ideas and divergent perspectives and value diverse cultures and various customs.  It will stimulate your mind and your eyes:  you will look more attentively and think more creatively.  Art will inspire you to pursue our visions, dreams, and hopes in your personal life and professional path.”   – Irina d.
