In the end, art survives and endures.
This was the closing statement of the cultures video on art I watched. I could not agree more. Often, I feel artists get little credit for their contributions, especially in newer societies such as North America. The artist is thought of as free spirited or even lazy. Yet, that is not an accurate assessment.
To my fellow artists, keep your head up, though society may not value our work, it is our creations that will survive and endure throughout generations to come.
If you doubt this, just think of the great Egyptian pyramids or Van Gough pieces.
