Art as a Gift. The Art of Giving.

My experience of art has involved some element of giving.  Like this oil painting given to me by my mother.

Or, like the artwork I experience around me, everywhere, from street art, to digital art, art hung on walls and built into urban landscapes.

In ‘Linchpin” Seth Godin describes art as,

…“a personal act of courage, something one human does that creates change in another” and also says “Art is a gift that changes the recipient.”

How about you? Do you think art is something which can give and even transform?

Perhaps the answer depends not just on your idea of art, but also on your preconceptions of giving.
