Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

It's important for people to have art in their home and life because art causes us to be present - we can, even briefly, leave aside the distractions of our workdays, family lives, and so forth, and instead pay attention to what is in front of us which, ideally, is an image/creation that we've chosen to live with and enjoy.
