reasons for art. i love this. a quote from Hoffberger

Hoffberger has said that “a good museum does more than just have objects that stand there on pedestals. The great ones are all muse-based, connecting viewers to the heart of inspiration.”[9] AVAM's educational goals[10] are another example of the museum's unorthodoxy. They are:
  • Expand the definition of a worthwhile life
  • Engender respect for and delight in the gift of others
  • Increase awareness of the wide variety of choices available in life for all ... particularly students
  • Encourage each individual to build upon his or her own special knowledge and inner strengths
  • Promote the use of innate intelligence, intuition, self-exploration and creative self-reliance
  • Confirm the great hunger for finding out just what each of us can do best, in our own voice, at any age.
  • Empower the individual to choose to do that something really, really well.
These same goals were adopted by The Lower East Side Girls Club when it was founded in 1996.[11]
