this ad struck me to the core. not just because it's main painting is by my favorite artist of all time, keith haring, but also because of what it reads.
there is nothing so alien ... as a home without art.
how true is that!? it got me thinking how i grew up. there were books everywhere ... markers and crayons and coloring books, blocks and trucks and dress up clothes in the chest. and there was artwork, monet, van gogh and seurat posters my mom had framed, a bronze sculpture of a woman's figure, native american rugs and tapestries. i was surrounded by art and creativity, it's no wonder i turned out the way i did. but in today's society, art is sometimes lost in the digital age. i just hope that the creativity within the new technology shines instead of darkens our youth. thank you to all the artists who are evolving with the new age and continuing to maintain that importance.
