Great art, whether it’s visual art, poetry, music, dance, or some other creative work, challenges and inspires us.

“One thing about great art: it made you love people more, forgive them their petty transgressions. It worked in the
way that religion was supposed to if you thought about it.” ~ Nick Hornby
