This is our shortened fun version of the saying "Art for art's sake". This slogan has French origins from the early 19th century — this phrase expresses the philosophy that the intrinsic value of art is divorced from any didactic, moral, political or utilitarian function. Art for the sake of art affirms that art is valuable as art in itself; that artistic pursuits are their own justification. This saying became a bohemian creed raised in defiance against those that believed that art need a purpose.
This is still relevant as art programs seem to be the first to be cut. We believe that anyone is an artist in their own wright and that you should always be encouraged to create. Art and design are what makes our world beautiful. The profits of this shirt go toward hosting art exhibitions for local artists and other upcoming art focused events.
