A Common Land

When art is known by many, a painting, song, or poem for example, I not only experience it emotionally and intellectually, I respond to it socially.

When a work of art I enjoy is embraced by others I become all the more immersed in it.

That others feel as I feel brings me together with them, holds me with them, if only for a short time.

Art in all its forms gives opportunity to share its common land.
