Why do you feel art is important to society?

Art is the way that we express ourselves when words can’t suffice. Being able to share a feeling with others is a form of communication that is incredibly special. On top of that, art doesn't matter. And I don't mean that as a negative at all. There are many important things in the world where a difference of opinion can mean the difference between life and death or a society thriving or falling apart. With art, you can have a difference of opinion or debate whether a piece has a certain meaning and it really doesn't matter. It's about personal experience. And I think that lightheartedness is something that is incredibly important in the world today.
