Bernie's Ramblings: The Six Functions of Art

Over the next several days I'd like to discuss the six functions of art – or the purposes for which humans create art. I plan to share examples of works (plus some of my own) that illustrate each of the functions and explain why I selected the works that exemplify these functions.

Six Functions of Art

• 1. Create places for some human purpose.

• 2. Create extraordinary versions of ordinary objects.

• 3. Record and Commemorate.

• 4. Give tangible form to the unknown.

• 5. Give tangible form to feelings and ideas.

• 6. Refresh our vision and help us see the world in new ways.

Stay tuned....
