making up your life

I like to play the imagination game of what if anything your hands touched was successful and you knew that , what would you do.
I would invent an art library where you could check out art for a month and then bring it back or keep it. But all the art available was always in constant circulation so nothing was ever just stuck in a closet. It always lived and breathed somewhere.
Would that change anyones life to be able to get something that spoke to them and have it just like that. If art was not just for a small group who could afford it.
Books are for everybody. Isn’t art just as important as books.
I imagine the art IQ of a town that was doing this would be pretty high.
Does art have any value intrinsically. Is beauty just a nice thing but not as important as books.
What if I told you that seeing a lot of art would change you on a molecular level/ What if there were studies to prove that.
Here is my philosophy about art. The more you are expposed to it them more sensitive to beauty the more refined you will become. The more civilized you will become. The more ciivilized you become the less likely you will be to tolerate uncivility. You will learn to abhor crudeness.
I cannot see how that wouln’t be better for society.
the desire to seek refinement is like a plant leaning toward the light to grow.
It is in us to lean toward the light. You just have to have a lot of light available.
