On why cheap art

There is no better #manifesto in my book. All art is valuable and necessary, but @breadandpuppet speaks an important truth. Art should not be used to exclude or limit. Audiences and artists can be found everywhere. Take the art to the streets. To the psychiatric hospitals. To the prisons, the rehabs and the schools. Build and create with what is around you. Start now, not when the circumstances are perfect. Creation begets creation. And the act of creation is always healing. Engage with the world and others will join you. This is enough.
