Art That STYX: Why Is Art Important?

“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.”
Twyla Tharp

What would a life without art be like? It may seem like a well known fact  that art is important to our everyday lives. But have you ever asked yourself why it’s so important?

Art in our everyday

Art may not be fully necessary for basic survival, but it does make life worth celebrating. Thankfully, art is everywhere and affects us on a daily basis, whether we realize it or not. 

In a workplace, surrounding employees with art has been shown to relieve stress, boost productivity, and drive creativity. In healthcare, studies have found that masking the plain walls with art helps patients gain positivity and recover quicker. In tourism, art is used to attract, engage, and even educate new-comers. 

Perhaps the most relevant and personal ways art affects our lives today is the way we decorate our homes. The paintings we choose to hang on our walls, the bedsheets we choose for our beds, or even the lamps we choose for our desks. We choose these things for our homes because they are an authentic representation of oneself. We choose these things for our homes because they create an environment of joy and comfort. 

It may be cliche to say, but our bodies are our homes too. As beauty enthusiasts, we love beauty products like makeup or a manicure not just because they allow us to express our inner selves, but also because they help us feel confident and motivated to take on each day.
