To communicate the importance of art, Starkville Area Arts Council (SAAC) President Ellen Boles asked the Starkville Rotary Club to imagine a world without it.
“Theaters from Broadway to hometowns would be non-existent,” Boles said. “Imagine a world without ever having seen the Mona Lisa’s smile. Would people flock to the Sistine Chapel to look at a bare ceiling? Art touches lives and makes us feel emotions. It can teach, uplift, enlighten and console. It sparks imaginations. Art can make one think, ponder (and) wonder.”
