Quotes about the Other Arts

"I went to New York to study painting and happened to get a record deal. When MTV happened, we all became movie stars. I couldn't leave the house for 10 or 12 years. ... Painting is harder on me than being on stage. I stand 8 or 10 hours a day. I used to consider it a hobby, but now I don't.

"Our human need for connection and expression demands that we find a way, hopefully in a beautiful way, to relate our feelings to each other in art and song. ... The effectiveness of making art or viewing art is not in a form of venting one's feelings as much as a person moving on to a different, more wholesome vein. ... We rely on creative people to help us fulfill our abilities to dream and improve our days and lives. ... Authentic voice in music and art, experienced first-hand, has the power to move us. ...when you are with the real deal, however humble or grand the artistic execution, you know it, and it reaches something inside our souls, confirming our basic right to existence." — Janet Sellers, "Art Matters: What does art really do?," Our Community News, Feb. 2, 2013

"When comedy is good, it's jazz. The beats of it, the looseness, the improvisational part, the music—the way you hit the inflection, the high notes of a joke. It's all melody to me." — Billy Crystal, "What I Know Now," AARP Magazine, Dec 2012 / Jan 2013

"Because the world is so corrupted, misspoken, unsgable, exaggerated and unfair, one should trust only what one can experience with one's own senses, and this makes the senses strong in Italy than anywhere in Europe. That is why, [Luigi] Barzini says, Italians will tolerate hideously incompetent generals, presidents, tyrants, professors, bureaucrats, journalists and captains of industry, but will never tolerate incompetent 'opera singers, conductors, ballerinas, courtesans, actors, film directors, cooks, tailors ...' In a world of disorder and disaster and fraud, sometimes only beauty can be trusted. Only artistic excellence is incorruptable. Pleasure cannot be bargained down. And sometimes the meal is the only currency that is real." — Elizabeth Gilbert, "Eat Pray Love"

"...the Balinese believe we are each accompanied at birth by four invisible brothers, who come into the world with us and protect us throughout our lives. ...

"Go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something." — Kurt Vonnegut

"The 'earth' without 'art' is just 'eh'." - contributed by George Takei

"People always make the mistake of thinking art is created for them. But really, art is a private language for sophisticates to congratulate themselves on their superiority to the rest of the world.

"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude." — Friedrich Nietzsche, from Rob Brezsny's Free Will Astrology

Reed was ashamed of radio. ...radio was a cinch if you kept reaching down and grabbing up handfuls of the ordinary." — Garrison Keillor, WLT: A Radio Romance

"...the average tax payer is not a big voluntary supporter of the arts. The only art that the average taxpayer buys voluntarily either has a picture of Bart Simpson on it or little suction cups on its feet so you can stick it onto a car window." — Dave Barry, Dave Barry Talks Back

"You almost never hear members of the public saying, 'Hey! Let's all voluntarily chip in and pay a sculptor upwards of $100,000 to fill this park space withwhat appears to be the rusted remains of a helicopter crash!' It takes concerted government action to erect one of those babies." — Dave Barry, Dave Barry Talks Back

"Talent excuses cruelty."
"Not talent, Thomas. Genius maybe." — dialog from The Weight of Water

"Disabilites are now a huge creative opportunity for us. We don't focus on them, but we don't ignore them, either. ...PHAMALY opened my world again.

"Early on, [Allen True] begins to get a little frustrated with that printed page thing because it's so ephemeral. People would open the page and read it and see his picture and then flip the page, and that would be the last they'd ever see of it. He wanted something that would endure." — Peter Hassrick on Allen True's transition from illustrator to easel paintings and then murals, quoted by Gary Glascow in "History / True West," University of Denver Magazine Spring 2010

"Illustrations reach a number of people, but the impact of mural work in architectural settings—as public art and the messages they convey—[Allen True] believes that to be the most important medium to him. He sees them as being a permanent fixture that are part of the building that people can see and experience and learn from." — Alisa Zahller on Allen True's transition from illustrator to easel paintings and then murals, quoted by Gary Glascow in "History / True West," University of Denver Magazine Spring 2010

"The funny thing is that the process of coming up with an idea for a column or a 'Candid Camera' sequence is essentially the same thing. I just live my life with eyes and ears perhaps a little bit wider open than some people. Whatever bothers me or seems off kilter or in need of parody—or on a serious subject, in need of examination—in the past I had done a sequence about it. Now I write a column about it." — Peter Funt, quoted by Gary Glasgow in "People / 'Camera' man," University of Denver Magazine Spring 2010

"I can't recall who first outlined for me the distinction between 'art of its age' and 'art for the ages,' but, over the years, I've thought of it often when approaching pop songs as a fan and critic. As a marketable cmmodity, one which reflects current patterns and trends, popular music tends to evince, sometimes awkwardly, the cultural reference points of the time in which it was created. Of course, every work of art dates to a certain extent; however, art that dates well can move beyond temporal boundaries in a way that speaks to us about our lives in the present. Applied to pop music, , it's the difference between a performance that sounds fresh each time we approach it ... and one whose charms are more evervescent, rooted in a specific time and place." — Dick Holler, "Behind the Song / 'Abraham, Martin and John'," American Songwriter, Nov / Dec 2009

"My favorite trip was to the Museum of Modern Art. For years I had been hooked on Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, shamefully to the exclusion of a lot of other music. I have different versions of it, and that day I was listening to Stokowski's on my headphones as I went in.When I got upstairs and turned the corner, I saw Monet's 'Waterlilies' for the first time. I know there are many paintings he did of this subject, but I had no idea how enormous this one was. The crescendo of 'Ode to Joy' caught me as I stood there and realized that I was listening to music a deaf man wrote while looking at a painting a blind man painted." — Brett Butler, Knee Deep in Paradise

"In 1938, Alex Steinweiss invented the album cover. It’s almost unimaginable that there was a time when records didn’t have covers (up until that point, they were sold in relatively plain brown paper wrappers advertising the record companies). Steinweiss’ idea was a huge marketing success which exploded into a new and exciting world of art and design. Now artists could explore their creativity in more expressive ways in a new commercial market. During the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s Jim Flora, Ben Shahn, Rudolph de Harak, Reid Miles, Steinweiss, and even Andy Warhol were major contributors to album cover design." — "Classic LP covers and why they're still fresh" e-mail from DiscMakers

"That, to me, is the part that's the most frustrating — having something that is not in a state to be seen, or publicly reviewed, getting out there. I'm keeping things secret ultimately for the audience.
"You're taking things too seriously if you're losing too much sleep over plotlines getting hout here and there. ... This is entertainment, and I feel like at a certain point, entertainment needs to be an experience and not information." — J.J. Abrams, quoted by Brian Truitt in "The man who holds the secrets," USA Weekend, October 24-26, 2008

"For students in Kit Carson's kindergarten through fifth-grade classes, the arts are a regular part of each school day — just like reading or math.
"Not only are students winning national music awards, they're also building strong work ethics, learning about team-work and sharpening their creativity. Those skills carry over into academics and, later, the workplace. ...
"Work is now under way to improve arts education in Colorado's public schools and to better weave the arts into math, science, reading and writing. Origami, for example, can introduce a child to the principles of geometry. Musical notes — a half note, a quarter note — help a child begin to learn fractions. ...
"We must provide a complete education that includes the arts if we want to graduate students with the creativity and innovation they'll need to soar." — Dwight Jones and Elaine Mariner, "Arts as key to learning as the 3 R's," The Denver Post, October 12, 2008

"Read the classics one hour every day, drunk or sober. Reading the classics gives one a feeling of confidence. It familiarizes one with the vagaries of life. It shows one that there are really no new plots." — Racehorse Haynes, quoted by Kinky Friedman in "Kinky Friedman's Guide to Texas Etiquette"

"Movies used to be filmed at a much more languorous pace. Today's movies look like they cut up the frames .... and mixed them with a salad shooter." — Batiuk & Ayers, "Crankshaft," The Denver Post, August 3, 2008

"Putting together a piece of art is more than creating something that is aesthetically beautiful, although that's part of it. You have to put meaning in it, and to do that ... you have to know yourself and truly know what you believe." — Michael Lente, quoted by Megan Kimble, "One to Watch / Michael Lente, creative writing and art," University of Denver Magazine, Summer 2008

"...a new kind of interactive fiction. These narratives unfold in fragments, in all sorts of media, from Web sites to phone calls to live events, and the audience pieces together the story from shards of information. The task is too complicated for any one person, but the Web enables a collective intelligence to emerge to assemble the pieces, solve the mysteries, and in the process, tell and retell the story online. The narrative is shaped—and ultimatelyowned—by the audience in ways that other forms of story tellingcannont match. No longer passive consumers, the players live out the story. Eight years ago, this kind of entertainment didn't exist; now dozens of such games are launched every year, many of them attracting millions of followers on every continent." — Frank Rose, "This Buzz for You," Wired magazine, Jan 2008

"...inspired by the spectacular sunsets visible from his new home, our here takes up painting—but through his newfound talent he soon discovers he can channel both secrets of the past...and scary visions of the future.'Okay, buddy, put down the brush and step away from the easel...'" — review of Stephen King's novel Duma Key, "Navigator," AARP magazine, March&April 2008

"Life may not be the party we hoped for,but while we`re here we should dance." — unknown

"In the isolated farmland counties of eastern Nebraska, where it is not uncommon to drive 30 miles for groceries, polka helps tie people together. The dances and the radio shows devoted to the music keep old friends in touch and circulate local news. But the music has been slowly fading since the 1980s as the farming population in Nebraska shrinks. 'It's our generation's fault,' said Darlene Kliment, 68, who owns the Starlite Ballroom west of Omaha with her husband, Ron. 'When we were growing up, our parents would take us to the dances. We'd fall asleep on the side of the stage, or in the booths. But then when our generation grew up, we got babysitters.'" — "In Focus: The last dance," The Denver Post, December 30, 2007

"I just wanted to take a moment and thank the Writers Guild for their strike.

"You learn this great lesson of life: it's not about me. It's just not. The matter of talent—which seemed so important to you when you were young—is not of great importance. We're simply a conduit.

"On a personal note, I remember observing, some 40+ years ago, that one reason I was a good dancing teacher was that I had only limited talent. Because my talent was limited, I encountered most of the problems that the average dancing student encountered. Because I had *some* talent, I could solve those problems. Because I could communicate (a key requirement for any teacher) I could tell others how to solve those problems. (A 'natural' talent never encounters the problems, and therefore doesn't know the solutions.)" — Bob Dolan
