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.
â€śTheaters from Broadway to hometowns would be non-existent,â€ť Boles said. â€śImagine a world without ever having seen the Mona Lisaâ€™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.â€ť
