It has come to my attention that some of our fellow human beings believe that Art and the Humanities are not worth stimulus dollars. I would like to know what you think.
When an artist says something meaningful, the art becomes valuable. Sometimes I think having less lets one see more. It is liberating. Those who make money buy art. Those who make the art are rich in a realm the monetarily wealthy will never know. So, I ask you, does it matter that the stimulus package excludes the Arts?
Those who are educated in Fine Arts, Liberal Arts and Humanities must continue critical thinking and communication. It cannot be about money. It must be about putting our species in a place where we can survive our greedy selves. Say it with meaning!
