the love of art ( importance of place)

Every day millions of people have the chance of expiring activities and famous art for free. Smithsonian is the rare museum brand that lets you go in the building for free. But, unlike the space museum and natural history, you can see some thing in the art museum that has been going on since the Egyptians art. paintings, how-did-they-do-that sculptures and inspirations. Looking at art is like getting a V.I.P. pass to the world, suddenly you're seeing a different side to the world, suddenly you're seeing the most disgusting things turn attractive and plain ordinary, never give a second glance things become the next Mona Lisa. Without art, there would be no graphic novels, no cool clothing, no poems, no book covers or books, no fancy building. While the art museum does not obviously show all that, if you squint you’ll see it actually does. I said it before and i’ll say it again, Art is hope and inspiration!
