Art is an unique way to express feeling, emotion, and perspective. I thought the question, 'Can art change the world?' was particularly interesting. I believe that art can change the world and is necessary. Not only does art add beauty to the world, but it also allows people to express themselves. In the article, The Whole Ball of Wax, Jerry Saltz discusses the meaning of art through philosophy and how it impacts the mind and other peoples thoughts. I agree with this statement. A single painting can be viewed by many different people in many different ways. Different people get different emotions for artworks and have different viewpoints and perspectives about the work. Art has a way of explaining things through unique interpretations. It can be abstract or realistic; it can be simple or complex, which makes art complicated and intriguing.
