Why do we love the arts? The answer is simple: it makes us feel good.

Sure the arts also drive us nuts. Art challenges us to think in different ways, to find new solutions, and forces perspectives on us that maybe make us uncomfortable. But they also make us feel good.

Doodling in a meeting? Belting out a tune in your shower? Adding an extra dance step during your early morning run? Telling your kid a story? Shaking your ass at a club? Painting your face for a night out? Feels good doesn’t it?

That’s “why art”.
