Absolutely YES! Without Art, there is no life. People wouldn't have the proverbial pot to piss in without Art. After all, someone had to design the pot.
is life necessary?
100 % yes.
Is Love necessary? Is frendshipd necessary? Are dreams necessary? Are books necessary? Is music necessary? Am i necessary? Are you necessary?
What made Cro-Magnon "doodle" in the caves of Alta Mira, or Lascaux? Is air necessary?
Art is what defines us as a culture, society, and beings. Without art, we are nothing.
For the artist art is, sure, necessary
if its not so ur site will be failed soon..
It is a bit like breathing....
It is if you are an artist.
Art reveals life..
Yes, and primerly for the artist. Ask the painters of the Lascaux or Altamira caverns if art was necessary. They created art almost without light, almost without colors, almost without tools. They did it because it was an urge, and a necessity.
Secondly, it is necessary for the public. Ask the contemporaries of the painters of the Lascaux or Altamira why they came to see it.
It was, it is, it will be always necessary. In some periods less, in some periods more.
For the people with soul --the answer is :Yes.
I think it is. I think even if not being a fan of the arts it still infuences everyday life. Even in the subtlest ways. Its all around us and makes up allot of the environtment we live in. from the buildings in the cities, the music on the radio to the car wash adds. Granted the adds are not my favorite but the art is still there. If you look back at adds from 50 years ago. They have an artistic quality to them. I'm certain they were not as appreciated in thier day as they are now.
NEVER AND ALWAYS
