I've always been taught that art effects the viewers but it has been hard for me to grasp the enormity of the impact that art often has on cultures, societies, politics and etc. Taking Art History this past semester, I have seen how much of ancient art was propaganda, intended to infuse the viewer with a feeling of loyalty, hatred, change. . . Today I went to the Springville Museum of Art and spent much of my time there in the exhibit of Soviet Art in Conflict. I found it fascinating. It made me really come to terms with the fact that although art is a depiction of the times, it is often a dictation of the times as well. Artists truly have power.
