Arts promote true prosperity, spark creativity and innovation, and have a social impact. Art influences society by changing opinions, instilling values, and translating experiences across space and time. The Value of Art and Culture – Art and culture greatly impact society and play an important role worldwide. Throughout human existence, art has been an imperative tool in measuring cultural development and recording history. Humankind  share their lives and experiences through art, leaving behind cultural monuments that still exist, such as Stonehenge, the Greek Parthenon, the Pyramids, Roman Colosseum, and more. Over a culture’s art, society gains a deeper insight into the history of that moment.
