Laurie Fendrich, an artist and art professor, reflects on art and Strauss. Good read. (Thanks to Ken).
The beauty of this article is refreshing because an artist actually seeks to study human nature, ask enduring questions about humanity and its condition, and recognize that art can and should uplift the soul of humanity to new heights. That is what the Sistine Chapel does. Unfortunately, it is not what "piss-Christ" does. Other artists may want to take notes. Read Confucius on the vaule of poetry, music, and the arts as well to bring harmony and beauty.
