Remember when you were a kid and you’d get so excited about art class?
Actually, it didn’t even have to be a class, something as simple as coloring was fun.
And heaven on earth was getting a box of 64 Crayola Crayons with the built in sharpener.
It didn’t matter what you drew or colored, each piece was a work of art and your mom would proudly display it on the refrigerator for all to see.
So, it makes me sad when people say that art doesn’t matter and schools have done away with their art classes.
Thankfully, institutions like the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), are filling that void and “educating through the prism of contemporary art”.
MCASD’s Executive Director, Kathryn Kanjo ensures that a variety of experiences and public programs are available for our entire community – because art does matter.
