I used to think art was a narrowly defined and unaccessible term. As I’ve grown older many things have changed. I realized that I had been surrounded by art all along. Hip-Hop culture, pottery, Salsa dancing, Ballet performances, film, folkloric dance and fashion; all are interests of mine and all are art. I greatly appreciate all of the cultural arts museums in the New York City area and would love to attend more of them. I think its imperative to learn about cultures and art that I consider foreign because it allows me to understand people better. One of the things that makes are so amazing is that it can bring you into someone else’s mind while also having some aesthetic appeal.
