great quote by our First Lady, about art

with one comment

Michele Obama reframed the dialogue yesterday at the reopening of the renovated American Wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

“The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there’s free time or if one can afford it. Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation.”

Hear, hear.
