Abstract

This study was motivated by the Author’s frequent experience of being questioned as to the everyday functional values of modern art and its purpose in relation to the betterment of individual and group living. The inability to present reasonable and concrete factors in a saleable capacity instigated a desire to conduct research in the interest of self enlightenment and the promotion toward a better understanding of our contemporary unfamiliar art. This leads directly into the problems of this study; how can society better understand modern art as a functional value in everyday living?
