how to fall in love with art :: a guide from the new york times

We kinda fell in love with How to Fall in Love With Art, the latest installation in the New York Times series, A Year of Living Better.

Art is good for you. But it’s not spinach. Its purpose is not to make you healthier or wiser — although that could happen along the way. The reason to nourish a relationship with art is the same as the reason for bonding with other people: to feel more fully human. Just like friendships or romances, these connections can be hard to initiate, and complicated to manage. But it will be worth it. We’re here to help you build confidence in your own taste and make a rewarding place for art in your life.  — Daniel McDermon
