The arts unifies us, tells us about ourselves and our history. A person does not have to learn a language, read a book, or invest in travel to be able to enjoy art from a foreign people. Cultural art, indigenous art, past and contemporary is reflective of the native customs, religious beliefs, and lifestyle across the planet. The power of unification that art has makes it more important than ever, especially in our divided country and world of diversity.
Today, museums have become more inclusive of indigenous art and non-european artists. Art previously was exclusive at traditional galleries. The art world in the past was monopolized by institutions, the wealthy, well connected and politically powerful. Historically, art was viewed with prejudice and systemic racism. At one time African art and indigenous art of native people were considered primitive, and not acceptable in a gallery. Carolann experienced this herself when first launching her art career. She believes it still exists though it is changing in some art circles.
She understands that prior to the written word art provided knowledge about people all over the world. Art taught us all about where they lived, what they wore, and how they cared for their families. Carolann feels that the art she creates is important. It is her legacy and will remain once she is gone, becoming part of art history.
