In 2015, we're resolving to setting some goals that we'll actually enjoy achieving. Rather than making unrealistic plans to get our money's worth out of our expensive new gym membership, we're going to go the arts route. Seeing more shows? Reading more Shakespeare? Now those are some resolutions we can stick to!
Personally, after seeing a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center with my family while they were in town for Christmas, I've decided to listen to and learn more about jazz. Wynton Marsalis led the band and told the most interesting anecdotes about each song. I can't wait to learn more about the humongous impact that jazz music has had on American and global culture. But also, listening to more jazz will be fun!
So, I wondered what other artsy resolutions people might have. I asked you on Twitter and Facebook pages, but I also asked our staff members. Below is a collection of my favorites. (P.S. It's still time to join in and make your own arts resolution! Tweet it at us, or leave your response in the comments. Let's make 2015 our artiest one yet!)

"I would like to visit more art museums this year. I had a chance to go The Whitney and MoMA toward the end of this year was totally inspired. I am also interested in seeing more public art."
