- Over a period of time Greek art of the past has changed and evolved into what we value in today?s society as true art and services as a blue print of our tomorrow.

- Most museum-goers would say that the artwork they are looking at is “impressive” or “interesting”, but they would not usually be able to tell you why they think so. This is because, even though they hold that different pieces of work are equally beautiful, it is not often that the inexperienced eye would truly realize exactly what makes each work unique.

- In eight quasi-connected stories, Susan Vreeland delivers a fictional lesson on aesthetics.

- Elements of Structure:Color is an important way of expressing feelings and moods. The use of color by an artist can convey sublime messages to the beholder that could not have been done with a thousand words.
