The four roundabouts in the Village of Oak Creek may at last be completed with public works of art, as designed. Quietly working since May 2022, the Art in the Roundabouts Committee is prepared to engage our community to discuss and work together to realizing the vision. Let us share the story and the vision with you...
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ART?
Art will expand your thinking and enrich your heart – art can uplift, provoke, soothe, entertain and educate us and is an important part of our lives. Ultimately, art is trying to see things that other people don't see. Art pushes boundaries – not only of what can be considered art, but also of our own capacity to truly see our surroundings. Art can open up our senses in new ways, deepening our understanding of the world and our place in it.
All art exists for a reason and these reasons make up the functions of art. The functions of art normally fall into three categories: physical, social, and personal. These categories can and often do overlap in any given piece of art.
