The guys start off this episode by talking to Cody about the Gospel Coalition Conference he and Daniel attended. He gives an update on the conference an some of the workshops and people he met and attended. He tells a story about their AirBnb house key that was lost and going through a process to get a new one made.
As they get into the meat of the episode that continue the series on What is Art. As they talk about the pieces in the episode today that bring to the forefront that art is more than just a man sitting infant of a canvas being creative and painting a cool picture. Art is a form and medium of communication. What does it communicate?
In the pieces they examine today, taken from the walls of the Arena Chapel in Italy, they show that art often did not portray an accurate picture of the subject, but rather, portrayed the ideal of that particular person or position.
They dig into a close up of one of the panels from the chapel and talk about the assumed people based on knowledge and understanding of art. There are recognizable people even if you don't know who they are you can know how they are. Having some knowledge of art and history can give any person the ability to interpret a piece of art and look past the surface of the painting and read it like it was intended to be. Art speaks, art is a story without words, art is communication...
