Appreciating art anywhere

March 31, 2012
By Cindy Votruba , Marshall Independent

To me, the arts are pretty important whether it's visual, musical, theater or other. It took a trip to France the summer after my senior year to fully learn to appreciate art for art's sake. Sure I saw some well-known pieces at the Louvre such as the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo, but it was the Impressionist art at the Mussee d'Orsay that got my attention. I totally fell in love with Claude Monet's work. It's currently my computer's background at work. That led me to take a couple of art history classes. I may not be able to draw, but I sure learned about the different art movements, like Baroque to pop art.
