All valid points but when has politics and art in America ever
agreed. Better yet on what occasion has a cause been championed where
all, or even most, of any funds raised gone to that cause.
America is one place I can say that is truly bi-polar when it comes
to art. At the root level art is wonderful to look at, be entertained
by, or own but many, too many parents, relatives, etc., feel that it
should be a hobby not a career unless you’re a successful artist.
At the political level it’s lost for sake of politics. After all
morals can be dictated by politicians Like the semi-nude statue of
Justice in the Department of Justice became immoral when the new
Attorney General came in. Hmmm what does he know that all the other
So what makes Politicians different well them asking for money is to
help us the people and artist can “potentially” create immoral art
after all it says “In God we Trust” right?
