Keeping the Faith

When Everything Changes, What Happens to Art?

Those who look back in anger at the art of the recent past use the current situation as a soapbox to beat up on things they either never liked or felt ashamed of. It's an old song in a new time. We don't know what will come any better than they do. All we can say to them is, when it comes to art, have a little more faith.
