B is for “Beauty”

| February 11, 2014

…I guess this one is a little cliché, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot.  This semester, I want to learn more about what we find “beautiful”.  Is art “beautiful” or is it something else?  And what makes a piece of artwork/a scene/a person/a work of literature “beautiful”?  Is it really a golden ratio?  The perfect combination of colors, angles, attributes, and/or words?  How can we make education, and life itself, “beautiful”?
