On TV people can get down and dirty. On TV people can see horror and violence. On TV everyone can be exposed to the news, the good and the bad. But how often do we get a healthy exposure to the Arts on TV? How often do we get to see interviews and analysis of Art, painting, sculpture, writing, dance, digital art, photography and all the creative arts?
The arts need more representation on TV. How often have WordPress websites, Joomla, Java or Van Gogh been exposed and glorified in all their power and glory? is It possible to have all things creative be brought into the public domain in such a way that it can be accessible and mainstream? Who would benefit? Advertisers and Marketing companies could answer this. Writers and Artists could tell you. Schools and colleges of the creative arts could point you to the answer.
We need more creative arts represented on TV and bring them into the mainstream. We need to make them more universal. We need our youth and everyone around us to truly grow up with art and be more exposed to Art. When we grow up with art, we become more receptive to it. We understand the message more in art. And since creative and artistic people are behind more and more things in our life, we owe it to each other to make it happen.
As more and more of us are turning online and to mobile devices to access everything - and since TV is now available on mobile devices, so too should the arts. Even traditional TV as it currently exists needs to show more art content, and make it a peak time endeavor. Art is for everyone, and it can be accessed and enjoyed 24 hours a day. It should not be something we just attend in a gallery, or museum on a weekend.
