Why Is Art Important?

I was asked this by Ms. Peg Pasternak of Lahser High School in Bloomfield Hills, MI where she teaches, and she has an upcoming presentation there to talk about this topic. It turns out this is something I think about a great deal, so in this short PowerPoint (ZIP-ped archive or PDF) I have put some of the points down that I think help to argue a justifiable case for creativity in our world. I know that it’s not a comprehensive list of things, but it’s a start that if you wish to add to please post your edits here as it’s far from perfect as a list.

Thank you! -JM PS Visit for regular updates to the RISD movement...
