@QueensMuseum Art is what makes life more interesting than art — Robert Filliou

@QueensMuseum Art can be a gift with more significance than the materialistic.

@QueensMuseum The arts are one of the few things that can enrich lives regardless of whether they are on Wall St, Main St or back streets.

@QueensMuseum The arts teach us that questions can have more than one answer. –

@QueensMuseum One of the art’s lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world. –

@QueensMuseum The arts teach: neither words in their literal form nor numbers exhaust what we can know.-

@QueensMuseum The arts enable us to have experiences we can have from no other source. –

@QueensMuseum The arts help us learn to say what cannot be said. -Based on Eliot Eisner’s “10 Lessons the Arts Teach.”

  1. Off the cuff: they who the most are more important who support what the art like belong always to me more
    than I can say except “we” though it goes deeply into who I am me too link.

  2. We support the arts because it gives everyone a vision and a sense of being creative. Art can be Therapeutic.

  3. I support the arts, because I’ve been artistic all of my life and was raised in a household of art lovers and art collectors and theater-goers (plays and movies.)

    The arts define our culture, really tell people who we are. They teach us to think in non-linear ways and to get in touch with our deepest collective Self.

  4. I love the QMA and support them because everytime I do, karma reciprocates by engulfing another Republican in some morality scandal.
