Why Art is Important in every civilized country

Most of what is being said about the arts being important in business, since that is our new president D.Trump's major interest, is certainly interesting. The fact that young children can learn to draw a straight line, a circle and a triangle is also important as it trains the hand and eye coordination.

My biggest claim is that there is nothing that a person wears, eats, uses, or sees outside of nature; that wasn't designed initially by some type of artist. It could be fashion design, industrial design, graphic design, package design, website design and so on, because that is the way the world works. If it comes in a package, it needs to be designed. All freight, mailings, USPS, just everything that isn't a stone, a rock, sea shell or tree, is designed by an artist. Who will take up this cry? and bring it to President Trump?

Arts Action:
We are in a position where we have to educate the government in general about the importance of the arts funding, to uphold the culture and civilization that has been built in America since 1492. It would appear that Americus Vespuccio for whom the U.S. was named, is pushed to the background, while everything that America has built and has stood for is crumbling in the hands of Donald Trump. Regarding the government's new head, D. Trump, now the 45th president of the U.S.A., there is a need for each one of us to write and tell our experience, what aspect of the art culture in America has meaning for us. We need to educate this government.

To illustrate, the civilizations that the president is decrying as terrorists, are already being destroyed by the descendants of the people who created the ancient structures, according to prior beliefs and knowledge. Those were the stepping stones of the history of the human traditions and cultures.

I don't actually follow, or even understand, political happenings and motivations. But it can be noted that many works of architecture and sculptures that were kept alive for centuries in the middle eastern countries for example, have been destroyed because they were regarded as no longer important for the MEMORY of the culture that they formerly came from. All religions have relics illustrating their pasts and their beliefs, and from those monuments, we can see the skills of the ancients, study the anthropological twists and turns that evolved over the centuries. It is not up to us to destroy ancient culture. Our ancestors are not going to be forgotten. Our arts programs, take for example the Art Channel on Public Television, is revered by those who love opera, ballet, symphony, music of all genres.

Public Television hosts a showcase of music. We hear and see art movements from every era, past and present, starting from the recent centuries since film was invented.

One of the most enlightening programs on Public Television is the work of Rick Steve, who takes us through countries we would like to, or plan to, visit.

This is important to our growing knowledge of where art has been and where we can take it to in the future. The act of creation is not done in a vacuum, but is a collection of the physical remnants of artists, philosophers, writers, musicians, who rose up during their time to make their voices heard. One of the most expressive forms of music is the jazz genre, which came from a culture that is vastly underrated within a large variety of important, intelligent, cultured, educated, and talented people. Jazz itself describes the musical pop culture of America since it's inception with early settlers in America.

According to the statistics of The Art Actions Fund, is in the billions. The ability to make art, to design, all craft, everything begins in the minds of the young, with early childhood education.To be able to know the basic visual forms that exist in earth's time, is to be able to decipher the world around us.

To repeat: There is nothing that a person wears, eats, uses, or sees outside of nature; that wasn't designed initially by an artist who was educated in our systems. It could be fashion design, industrial design, graphic design, package design, and so on, because that is the way people recorded their surroundings from the earliest times. All freight, mailings, USPS, just everything that isn't a stone, a rock, sea shell or tree, is designed by an artist. Who will take up this cry? and bring it to President Trump?
