CIVILIZATIONS - ART HISTORY - IMPACT ON HUMANITY

ART IS HISTORY. IT RECORDS THE RISE AND FALL OF EMPIRES, CHANGES TO THE WORLD AROUND US, TRADE ROUTES THAT BROUGHT TO US NEW COLORS AND NEW IDEAS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE. THROUGH ART, WE HAVE CREATED IDEALS OF HARMONY, DOCUMENTED THE WORLD AS IT IS, AND EVEN ESCAPED EVERYDAY REALITY ALTOGETHER. ALTHOUGH OUR LIVES ARE SHORT, ART CAN ALLOW US A GLIMPSE OF SOMETHING MORE ETERNAL.

ART CAN BE SEEN AS SO FOUNDATIONAL TO CIVILIZATION, AN EXPRESSION OF HUMANITY.
