Art Quote of the Day

CREDO

I believe in art.

I do not believe in the “art world” as it is today.

I do not believe in art as a commodity.

Great art is in exquisite balance. It is restorative.

I believe in the energy of art, and through  the use of that energy , the artist’s ability to transform his or her life and, by example, the lives of others.

I believe that through our art, and through the projection of transcendent imagery, we can mend and heal the planet.

Audrey Flack– from commencement address delivered at the Pennyslvania Academy of the Fine Arts, May 1984
