Politics and Art

Upon first reading that we had to write about politics and art, I thought, I don’t want to write about that, I don’t know how they are related… But once I actually thought about it I realized that they are connected in almost every way!  Artists, especially, I think, are aware of what is going on around them and are very in tune with their emotions within what they do.  This, naturally, would come out in their art.  Not always, but usually, after a huge world-changing (probably political) event, the art that follows that time period has changed because of it and reflects whatever happened.
