Baby Boomers may have paved way for 21st century artists
on Monday,January 03,2011 21:01
The Baby Boomer generation has been credited with a large portion of the success seen today in the 21st century, but experts have found it difficult to pinpoint its contribution to the arts. Now, further examination is revealing that Baby Boomers may have made an impact after all - on the consumer end of the field.
Individuals in the 1960s and 1970s helped popularize the auctioning and collecting of contemporary art, according to USA Today. Baby Boomers also had an optimistic attitude about the industry, believing that anyone could pick up a paintbrush and creatively express themselves.
"We look back to the generation of the boomers as opening a lot of new doors and directions; it was a time when everything seemed possible, new ideas were all over the place," Elizabeth Broun, director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, told the news source.
Baby Boomers have also been credited with adding art to their community, such as improving public facilities by cleaning up trash and exemplifying local architecture.
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Learning more about the history of art may encourage individuals to pursue a career in the field.
