Art teaches. Art communicates. Art has humor, adven- ture and passion. Art matters! People are the only living crea- tures who make art. It is a uniquely human activity, and the sole reason we have an advanced civilization. We use visual images to communicate with one another as a species. Art tran- scends language, different cultures, time and distance. It keeps us connected to one another. It keeps us human.

Join us for a mini-history of western civilization through art, from the caves to the shuttle, to see and understand how art and civilization depend upon each other. Be sure to bring your sense of humor and your sense of Human.
