Why is art important?

 Why is art important? Roy Capellaro says "Art is important because it is what makes us human".
While I was driving I heard an interview with someone who said artists show us what is important and what is worth saving. Sometimes they show us what is wrong or unjust in our world. 
        Author Jose Arguelles wrote in his book The Transformative Vision: Reflections on the Nature and History of Human Expression, that art helps define and guide every culture and civilization.
