Curator’s Words


Art Side of Life


Maya Ramos


Being artistic entails being creative. And being creative is inherent in our human nature. Making spontaneous decisions and simply enjoying the moment is a large part of being creative. Being artistic provides us with a blank canvas on which to create whatever we please. It enables us to visualize our most fantastical dreams and deepest desires and to translate them into a physical medium. Even if you are not a skilled painter or writer, attempting to be artistic provides an opportunity to practice spontaneity, creativity, and self reflection about what you find most pleasing about life.
