The Art of Change
Artists play a powerful role in shaping our views of who we are as a country. Whether activists or innovators, chroniclers of history or interpreters of current events, they wield their talent and help us grapple with our biggest challenges. As artists undertake their work in these times of rapid innovation, the platforms they employ continue to change. The “business” of music, film, dance and theater dramatically shifts the ways in which we experience art and culture. Do these new paradigms compromise or enhance how artists work? Do they undermine or increase their power as change makers? This track explores the role of culture and creativity in responding to an ever-changing America.
