"If art is about aesthetics and perception (seeing) and knowing in action…Can we continue the dialogue for art to be limited to the equal of making?"
- Robert Irwin

Art like life should be free, since both are experimental.
- George Santayana

"Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it. "
- Robert Motherwell

"Don't love yourself in art, love the art within you"
- Stellar Adler

"Art is not only a form of action, it is a form of social action. For art is a type of communication, and when it enters the environment, it produces its effects just as any other form of action does. "
- Mark Rothko

"When a thing is seen through the consciousness of temporality, it is changed into something that is nothing. This all-engulfing sense provides the mental ground for the object, so that it ceases being a mere object and becomes art. “
- Robert Smithson
