Bonus QotD: "Artists have always been dreamers. Whether we follow beautiful dreams or nightmares is up to us."



"Artists have always been the dreamers. Whether we follow beautiful dreams or nightmares is up to us. Ugliness and cruelty and tragedy are part of life, to be sure, but the Romantic Realist knows that in art, it is life-serving values that we need to see—to experience—in order to bring those visions of values into existence in the real world. The avant garde artists today may be again the romantic crusaders of the future yet unsung, each armed not with a sword but with a rose."~ Alexandra York, from her essay 'Romantic Realism: Vision of Values'
