I love how artists can create worlds all their own—using the hills and
valleys of a beautiful landscape or the sensuous curves of the human
form. But that’s not all artists are capable of doing. Centuries ago,
great artists like Michelangelo and Bernini didn’t just build worlds in
their paintings and sculptures, they actually constructed amazing works
of architecture—church facades, magnificent tombs, and exquisite
palaces. The artists imagined an environment from the ground up, and
were often able to turn their visions into reality.
