The Cultural Importance of Arts & Exploring Van Gogh Works in Sarasota, FL.

Art has always been an integral part of society, dating back all the way to ancient times. The oldest known cave painting dates older than 64,000 years and it was found in Maltravieso cave, Cáceres, Spain. The purpose of cave paintings is still not completely known, but the evidence suggests that their purpose was to transmit information, while other theories suggest they held religious or ceremonial purpose.


The point is that we have been doing art for a very long time! In fact, the world would be rather dull without music, paintings, dance, literature and other forms of expression.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ― Aristotle

Art is essentially an extension ourselves of how we experience the world individually and collectively. Art is much more than creating beauty, although the artistic expression can be between the artist and the perceiver can certainly be a measure of affect. Many artists over the centuries have explored themes such as hope, despair, adoration, love, and spite in their works. Sometimes they can be elusive, subtle or explicit, and the subjects of art are bounded only by the imagination of the artist.

“Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter’s soul.” Van Gogh

One of the most celebrated and influential Dutch post-impressionist artists of Western Art painted about 2,100 artworks in a short span of a decade. Vincent Van Gogh created an astounding body of artworks, including landscapes and self-portraits, and his art is distinguished by bold colors and expressive brushwork.


Despite his talent and skillfulness, he did not achieve success commercially during his lifetime. Van Gogh had a very short and turbulent life, suffering from mental stability and psychotic episodes. Although he was unsuccessful during this lifetime, he is now

considered one of the most talented artists of all time, and his works are among the world's most valuable ever sold at auction.


In our fourth video from our "Dolce Vita - The Artist Travel Journal" Series where we bring with us to our adventures and travel explorations. We explored widely recognized works such as “The Starry Night”, “Sunflowers” and “Café Terrace at Night”. This art exhibit was highly interactive, with works appearing and disappearing, flowing across multiple surfaces, and heightening the senses with their immense detail. Check out our video below to experience it for yourself!


We hope you enjoyed this article! We look forward to educating parents and students, and how music & performing arts are such amazing catalysts for change in our lives and community.
