It’s like this: Whether you go to art school or hone your art game in other spaces, now’s the time for you to learn how to use images, words, sounds, and other materials to shape our culture. I’ll be the first to admit that my art isn’t necessarily about to put food in people’s mouths. But I can use my creative impulse to connect with someone, change a mind, or contribute to some emotional experience that is enriching, because feelings aren’t frivolous. And chances are that if your art-thing is important to you, it will be important to someone else too.
