pioneering / theme
Exchanging the known and familiar for one chance at something rich and new. Relinquishing, traveling light. Covering a lot of ground. Opening up new territory. Being the first one to see. Naming landmarks after yourself and your friends. Settling down and eking out a living. Learning as you go. Sometimes, becoming the patriarch or matriarch of a flourishing region. Other times, leaving only bones to tell that you were there.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
