Art and Life

"Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses - especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else." Leonardo da Vinci

The art of science, the art of communication, the art of personal expression and the" art of art" are integral to every society. The graffiti murals on city streets today and the prehistoric murals in the caves of France tell stories of daily life. Jazz, classical, and hip hop create a cacophony of sounds that stir our feet and bodies into action. Shakespeare festivals and Renaissance Fairs; David Mamet and Tennessee Williams; Caroline Cheatwood and Gretchen Dyer - all remind of us our histories and hint at the future.
