Jonathan, more than a few people are ashamed to accept that artistic anarchy keeps them living in attics. Here's how I see it: You give us information about what resources are available to creative persons; creative persons tell you what they need - you should not have to plead to get such creatives to flood you with requests for aid. I vehemently disagree with your assertion that, even in a perfect world, if one keep the artistic nose to the grindstone, then patrons should appreciate it and shower you with money and compliments. Where has there ever been found excellence in artistic creation without patronage, commissions, and conflict. Art is for people who fight to shine the beacon of meaning through the maelstrom of cultural presumption. Fight on, Jon, and challenge creatives to exploit your energies to their best advantage. When did artists go so soft?!
