WHAT'S THE STORY?

Art does more than just show what you see.

Men Exist for the Sake of One Another.
Teach Them Then or Bear with Them

(from the Great Ideas of Western Man series) (detail)
It tells about events you remember and stories you've heard.

Some of these stories are very private and personal. But sometimes art tells the story of a whole group of people.

It can even tell the story of a whole group of animals.

How we giraffes learned to eat from treetops is an especially fascinating story.

Do you think I could turn it into an art project?

There are a lot of wonderful stories in the artwork here in my museum.

So, before I get out my art supplies again, let's find some of them.
