Many friends have commented that they feel that art, especially music and
painting is miles ahead and historically has been ahead of other aspects of
our society as far as merging cultural diversity into the stream. They feel
that our society finds the most tolerance for others via art in comparison to
popular culture, tv, education, etc.......... Therefore the art world is way
ahead of society. How do you feel about those comments and concepts? Do you
think that is true and if so in what way? Thanks.
