How do you celebrate diversity?
Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?
Do you watch artists who use mediums that you don't use in your own art?
Within mediums that you're familiar with, do you enjoy browsing genres that you don't often explore in your own work?

Do you find your own artistic style being influenced by the experience of viewing other people's work?
Are your horizons broadened by learning about other mediums and genres of art?
