Statements about the Value of the Arts 

“You see, I am an enthusiast on the subject of the Arts. But it is an 
enthusiasm of which I am not ashamed, as its object is to improve the taste 
of my countrymen, and to increase their reputation, reconcile to them the 
respect of the world and to procure them its praise.” 
Thomas Jefferson

“Aristotle believes that when created nobly and performed with masterful 
technique, art can foster moral growth and overall improvement of society.” 
Aristotle, 384-322 BCE, Greece
The Daily Book of Art, p. 89

20th Century artist, Hans Hoffman states that:
"Nature's purpose in relation to the visual arts is to provide stimulus-
not imitation....From its ceaseless urge to create springs all Life-all 
movement and rhythm-time all light, color and mood-in short, all reality 
in Form and Thought."
