The Artist's Duty
Artists are not only mirrors of the world, but also keepers of the soul. We must often work not only to editorialize on current events and the sentiments of the masses, but it is often our job to also work as a counter balance. In a world of greed, we need to give more than ever; in a world of pain it is our chance to console; and in a world of doubt and uncertainty, it is our job to evoke hope and to remind ourselves of the beautiful basics of humanity.
