Just as artists strive to connect with and evoke feeling from their audience, designers and architects aspire to do the same through their creative use and blending of materials. Both artists and designers want to create an experience for their audience, whether it’s a museum visitor or person entering a hotel lobby. Good art and design bring beauty to people’s lives.
