Culture Arts

Art, as a vast subdivision of culture, is composed of many creative endeavors and disciplines. It encompasses visual/plastic arts (traditional fine, modern fine, modern visual, applied, decorative, literature, and music) and performing arts. To the world of tourism, it brings “style, culture, beauty, and a sense of continuity of living”, while tourism “arguably creates a channel whereby new art forms can gain support (both financial and moral), and helps to broaden the audience for the arts”.
