We begin with this premise: art meets some universal human need. This premise emanates from two observations:

1) Art has been found in every single culture known to Man. While each culture and for that matter, each human, determines what it artistic and what isn’t, there has always been art form. 

2) The artistic experience, whether we are the artist or the spectator, evokes unique responses in humanity. These responses, such joy, sadness, boredom, anxiety, revulsion, or transcendence are in response to artificial stimulation. 

What then is the universal human need for art?
