In our current age, the arts appear to be in as robust a condition as they may have ever been.  There is an abundance of popular music, theater and dance performances, sculpture and graphic arts, fashion, movies and video games, and written works for consumers to select from.  Access to the various forms of mainstream art is ubiquitous and nearly instantaneous for anyone who seeks to be distracted, educated, moved, amused, or simply scared out of their wits.  Its content is all familiar, socially acceptable, and probably most importantly, salable.  When we hear a work like “Star Wars” referred to as a franchise, we are expected to acknowledge its commercial value, and endure an almost unrelenting multimedia torrent of messages that reinforce this.  Yet as a consequence, we often devalue art when our focus is implicitly shifted away from its meaning as an artistic creation.


Finding this meaning in art is a deliberate contemplative act, requiring a mixture of stillness, openness, and timelessness that is often missing in our everyday lives.  In stillness, we filter out the less relevant stimuli that clamor for our attention, overcoming the restless urge to move on to something else.  Being present in the moment allows us to see, hear, or feel the work of art before us.  Shapes become an otherworldly landscape, notes become a jazz riff, cloth becomes the finest silk.  Openness in the presence of art allows us to begin to uncover the layers of meaning that it contains – its stated themes, historical and social context, connection to archetypal traditions, and ultimately, deeper insights into the essence of the work.  Reaching an appreciation of an artistic creation is a dividend realized from an investment of time.  We achieve this understanding at our own pace, based on our desire to remain still and open, and we eventually find the meaning at the core of all art is a glimpse into our soul, the soul of the artist, and possibly something even greater than both.  The art works that can bring us to this level have value beyond measure.
