A question with a thousand different answers. The value of art does not hold one meaning, or one correct interpretation, or just one organized view. In truth, the entire purpose of art is to bring multiple understandings and thought to its value. The creation of art and its presentation to the public eye offers the opportunity to allow oneself to delve into thinking one may not have been exposed to before. And with such opportunity brings a value created for each individual experience. The discovery by a person from a creation conceived by an artist is ever longing. Artists put thought purpose and endless time and dedication with passion into their art. With these devoted feelings, the artists’ crafts that are presented to the outside world are the offerings of a new view of value. And with that, the value of art is expanding beyond a money-defining solution. There is no right or wrong way on how to value art. It is simply a reaction and from it perhaps something new is revealed or learned.

But with these personal art-related ventures by each viewer and observer, brings the value of expression through different forms of language.

Each and every work by an artist that is sculpted into something presented to the public, invites a new conception of knowledge. Thus, a value. And with value a new learning of something, anything. May it be a Jackson Pollock painting of strides and chaos, the sculptures of Michelangelo and the pristine finishings of marble, or photographs capturing American life by Robert Frank, each of these visions and crafts of passion reflect an inner existence of life from each artist. Thus, creating value. Value from experience. Experience of the observer. A takeaway from the produced and crafted art in the presence. Why is art so valuable?

So when you ask the question, why do we value art? Take a second to take it into your own thoughts. Understand why you value the things you do, and what you learn from them all. This is art. Daily life is art. Moving onward with all experiences of the art of life itself. Go see art!
