ArtSchools.com, a directory of art colleges, explains how the newest blockbuster, “The Monuments Men,” showcases the importance of art and why it is an essential part of world culture.
According to a January 27th article published by Post Crescent titled “’Monuments Men’ Shows Value of Art to All Cultures,” the new movie chronicles the journey of a group of Allied soldiers in World War II in Europe. These soldiers were tasked with recovering the tens of thousands of art pieces, such as paintings, sculptures, drawings and artifacts, confiscated by the Nazi regime during the war.
The article says, “Officially established by an order from President Franklin Roosevelt in 1943, the job of the Monuments Men was to preserve and recover the cultural property of cities, countries, museums, churches and individuals that had been taken.”
Andrew Girard, a representative from ArtSchools.com, says the story explores the importance of global art and culture. “In the story, President Franklin Roosevelt ordered these men to bring back priceless artifacts that represent world culture and history,” he says. “Art, though it may sometimes be overlooked, is an essential part of our history as citizens of the world. It documents our history and our cultural icons. Art is truly irreplaceable and invaluable.”
Girard says that even now, art should be considered a precious part of our culture. “Art should still be revered as an essential part of our lives,” he says. “It’s what inspires us and fuels our creativity. It should not be forgotten, and it should not be overlooked as an educational tool.”
