Often times people think of Art as simply something pretty, yet throughout history art has provided a method of seeing ourselves, creating a reflection of culture, history, humanity and the condition of mankind. Bringing art to the community is a form of education and is demanded by a responsible society. Reflecting on our daily actions, large and small is a way of learning about ourselves and others.
This exhibit is one of those examples of reflection as demonstrated by the New York Times attention to this exhibit.
