What Does an Artist Do?
Artists Change / Expand Cultural Narratives.
Artists Inform, Reflect, Arouse, Amuse, & Anger.
Artists Give the Public "What It Wants" (But Often Not How They Expect).
Our function is ancient.
We represent the center of social psychic activity.
We influence & heighten cultural momentum. Without artists, cultures would stagnate - and thus innovation would stagnate all around.
The visions of our future comes from artists.
The order of the present comes from artists.
Our orientation to the past comes from artists.
The justification of our lives comes from artists.
