|What do you think about public funding for the arts?
I think the public funding for the arts is an idea that would afford a great deal of people who are otherwise unable to express themselves in a creative manner. Giving an outlet to possibly the next artistic genius of our generation who might not have otherwise been afforded that opportunity because of economics.
unable to articulate at this time...
I think it's wonderful that the general public can have access to the great works as well. I'm a big fan of museums, free concerts and theatre.
I don't. Mostly, my experience is that funding bodies make you jump through hoops for little return.
I'm generally in favor of it. A society that values the arts should also contribute funding to them, in particular for arts education and community projects.
Don't think it should be through federal channels. But I do think local accountable funding can work.
I think it's great. I wish the public would fund some of MY art. Anyone want to give me some money?
Bring it on!!!!
Is a good thing, personally I haven't get any, I have literally become an starving artist.
I can say that i am working my ass on a 8hrs a day, 5-6 times a week job just to sustain my artistic development.
I can say that we should be protected. I don't know how, but this is what i think. Protected should we be.
Art represents the culture. Archaeologists use art as the defining force of past societies. If a society has no public art, it mirrors its lack of significance and being.
You may surmise the rest of my answer.
Art needs to be part of living, I think that is why we create art to help us see the beauty in all things
Absolutely. Art is life, we need support...
It is good because it makes art accessible to the masses. It is a must in developed countries. It is a luxury in underdeveloped countries.
Man works first to live (or to survive). Only after that, Man works to live well. Only after that, Man works to outlive his time in the memory of other men (that is when he makes art). Starving people cannot make art and cannot appreciate art, even if public funding makes art accessible to the masses. So Governments in poor countries must fund first the hunger, secondly the well being of their countrymen. Only after that comes funding the arts there.
That is not the case in rich countries. The people already are living well. Let them have art available.
