In Unit 2, we saw how public art brings great value to the cultural and aesthetic vitality of a community and contributes to a sense of belonging and pride of one's community. Public art is one of several ways in which communities demonstrate the value of art 🎨. Those involved in public planning and development recognize the intrinsic value of the arts and their impact on the emotional well-being 🙏🏽 of the community.

In the United States, museums are largely supported through private patronage. While there are donors in France, historically the French government plays a major role in subsidizing the arts: museum collections 🖼️ theater 🎭 music 🎶 literature 📖 and even cinema 🎬. This governmental support of the arts is common in many francophone countries such as Belgium and Switzerland. Fun fact! There are over 100 museums in Paris! Maybe that's why it's the most visited city in the world?
