Many governments in the world spend large amounts of money on art, which helps to improve the quality of people’s lives. However, governments should spend money on other things rather than art. Do you agree or disagree? Give your opinion.

Societies with a heritage in the ‘arts’ have long been considered culturally sophisticated and advanced.
However
, with the recent financial crisis
this
lavishness and expense should be questioned. Tax-payers’ money has to be spent practically rather than on cultural endeavours.
Firstly
, not everyone in society appreciates
art
, and,
secondly
, employment should take precedence.
Art

into one’s
life
if you are interested. In

the sculptures

.
This
fact makes it impossible that
art
can bring
quality
into a community if the galleries hold little interest for the region.
Secondly
, the resources diverted to
such
projects come from the public and should be spent in a way that benefits them. Commissioning or purchasing
art
is an insult to taxpayers who endure high unemployment,
such
as, those in Newcastle, UK.
This
city suffers from historically high unemployment, yet the council commissioned a large sculpture called ‘The Angel of the North’. Financing a job creation project would undoubtedly have been more practical for the local community. To conclude, I believe that it is an unjust affirmation that
art
brings
quality
into one’s
life
, and I agree that the money should be spent elsewhere.
This
is because
art
expenditures only benefit a small minority and
secondly
the expense involved should benefit the majority. Ideally in the future, governments will recognise that
quality

derives from a decent opportunity in

, not a sculpture.
