How does art affect your social life?

In a world where we cant visit museums as readily, why not bring the experience home? Art encourages conversation, giving people permission to share thoughts, feelings, ideas and impressions that they might not ordinarily share.

What makes an original art work so much better?

Ideally, an original piece you love should be in your life for many years and never lose its capivating effects!
