New Year resolutions always follow the same routine, every year we focus on getting slimmer (for about a month), changing our styles, and letting go of stressors. As 2016 rolls around, try breaking the cycle and finding a new perspective this year through the unique Art museums and studios that Athens have to offer. Immersing yourself in art and art culture is a great way to relive stress and expand your knowledge of new and classic artists, learn a bit of history, and get in touch with your creative side. Candace Ibori, a freshman, Biology major, from Asheville, North Carolina, says, “Art is important to me because it’s a constant reminder of the beauty of the human mind and the blend of cultures that surrounds us today.” Get to know some of the up and coming artist of this year; and who knows, you might even get inspired to become the next great artist of Athens yourself.
Here’s a list of five Art Museums and Studios around Athens to help you see and understand art in new, creative perspective for the New Year.
