Had a rather interesting conversation with Gabriel Gonzalez regarding whether art is important in today’s world. He expressed that art is important in modern life because it represents the cultures of the world. One in which I agreed upon because art is evidence and a living memento of our past. He also mentioned the similarities and differences between civilizations in which I interpreted that he was saying that most religions or cultures are connected at some point. He pointed out that art is also evidence on how far civilization has progressed throughout the years which is why people of today must appreciate and understand what people thought, did, and believed all those years ago because it is there as a reminder of our culture, religion, traditions, and basically the whole civilization.
