Visual Images are a form of Communication that is unique to Humans Beings. We are the only living creatures who make art. Art teaches. Art communicates. Art has humor, adventure and passion. Art matters! Art transcends different languages, different cultures, vast distances and great amounts of time. It keeps us connected to one another. And, art tells stories. From gossip to great literature, the stories visual images are capable of telling affect us on many levels; emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Through the centuries, art continues to entertain, teach, stimulate and inspire.
