The Role of Art in Our Society

Humans have been involved in the creation of art since prehistoric times. The processes of developing, enjoying and preserving art have become intertwined with other essential human functions. From 4-line poetry to enormous murals and mind-boggling sculptures, all forms of art have found their place in human society. Though many would argue that such things are pointless and wasteful, they do not realize how art influences everything they do.

It is often difficult for artists to find the recognition they deserve, but once they achieve great fame, they adorn human history. Art belongs in all sections of society, including religion, education, law-making, etc. It is as vital to the common man as it is to an extremely wealthy individual.

What one perceives and enjoys as “art” might vary from person to person, but there are innumerable creations of beauty that are universally adored. Since art has existed for tens of thousands of years, let us see what role it plays in our society.

A way to express emotions

Being a human being implies that you experience tumultuous feelings that often overwhelm you. People use different means to cope with this overflow of emotions. When you feel sad, you turn on a mellow song and listen to it. Similarly, when you are happy, you search for an upbeat one. Even if you do not create art, art often finds a way to you when your emotions are concerned.

For artists, their art often becomes a way to channel and express these emotions. It is often seen in the case of poets, painters and singers who use their particular craft to let the pressure out. Art often becomes a tool that helps intangible emotions take on a physical form. There have been many famous photographs that showed sufferings of citizens from lesser-known nations. These photographs make their way around the world and influence people from all sections of life.

Once this art develops from the artist’s feelings, it is out to help all those who experience it. Art often converts despair and misery into hope and joy. Art therapy is a valid form of treatment that helps heal struggling individuals. Either the creation or viewing of artworks enables them to confront the things they have been dealing with and express them better. This takes them on a path to self-improvement and reduced anxiety.

Preserving the Culture

Vibrant, rich and beautiful cultures are the bedrock of every strong nation. Most communities around the world treasure artefacts passed down from their ancestors. These different forms of art are said to be a part of that community’s culture. By being passed from generation to generation, these objects or literature keep the culture alive and inspire the younger members of the family.

The lyrics of folksongs describe events of the past or the things people enjoyed or suffered from. Today, these folksongs often take on a new appearance to bode well with the lovers of modern music. In international movies, references are made to particular cultures with the use of various forms of art. Some might include a Bollywood song, Chinese lanterns or Japanese origami.

Art from different cultures, as they traverse boundaries, become means of unification, tolerance and acceptance. Immigration has always been prevalent throughout the world, and immigrants from each country bring aspects from their culture that will act as an excellent addition to their new location.

Improving the country’s revenue and reputation

The tourism industry is an integral part of every nation. Great tourist spots are not limited to natural formations such as mountains and rivers. For some busy cities, casinos become the most important tourist spots. For those who have only gambled online on sites like, these tourist spots are physical manifestations of a much-loved online world.

Art Galleries and museums are also crucial in maintaining the tourism industry. When someone visits an unknown location, they will express interest in learning everything about that place, including the local culture and popular and historical art forms. Visual forms of art often traverse communication boundaries and unite those who do not speak the same language.

The ancient murals and poetry etched into rocks along with traditional jewellery and objects of adornment all become a part of history. They tell a story about the way people used to live and the things they found worthy of appreciation. Communities with wonderfully preserved historic artefacts become cultural hubs in a country. They also take a spot in the “must-visit locations” list that every future tourist discovers online.

Summing Up

Artists and their artworks have always been and always will be necessary for the functioning of human society. As technological innovations advance, newer forms of art emerge in the world. Some might become obsolete after a few hundred years, but they will continue to be a crucial part of the society’s history. Artists often do not receive the respect they deserve, but they continue to enrich our lives and community with their beautiful works.
