As (I hope) everyone knows, art is everywhere, Some people can see it, some people can't. Or choose not to. Some people appreciate it, some people don't, choose not to.

Wether you like it, dislike it or don't care about it, art is important and it should be appreciated. Art opens your mind, art gives you a different vision of the world, the people and even of yourself. That's why dedicating a part of your time to appreciate the art around you is essential, be it paintings, poems, music or even the art of living and being who you are.

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” ― Émile Zola

Now, let me talk about part of my experience with art. Since I was little I have always been encouraged to appreciate and be in contact with art in various ways, and that is something I'm very thankful for.

Last summer I spent great part of my time visitng all types of museums regarding all sorts of topics. But the one that provided me the the best experience was maat (museum of art, architecture and technology), in Lisbon.

The exhibit was "Utopia and Dystopia". As quoted from the website Wallpaper, "The exhibition charts the gathering skepticism of idealistic modernist designs of the late 20th century, moving towards the contemporary obsession with dystopia".

Visiting this exhibit was an eye opening experience. Not only the content but also the design of the museum itself and everything and everyone involved. I can't begin to explain how much I've learned that day.

Everytime you've got the opportunity, you should definitely visit a museum, whatever it is about. Be in contact with art, appreciate art and learn from it.

Thank you for reading!
