Rick Vian Life Without Art Is Stupid Poster on sale now

Just as there is no "medium" without a "message" (and vice versa), there is no discourse about art worth hearing unless a simple imperative is provided at some point to justify art's presence in our society. Rick Vian, a painter and teacher at the College for Creative Studies, took a hint from the philosopher Occam and with razor-like precision carved out a maxim we can all agree upon: Life Without Art is Stupid.

There is nothing fatuous about those words, people. Any individual who truly thinks (or worse, has been taught to believe) that life is nothing more than mere respiration... and expiration is actually wasting the measured-out breath of an all-too brief existence on this planet. Something inherent in the human condition desires the contemplation and appreciation of those things that are created by human hands. More importantly, there is something in every artistic expression that validates the human condition itself.
