Re: The Role of the Artist
Cantab, Smith is 4 miles from my house, I was there this past weekend in my role as father with the kids at the botanical gardens. Very nice art museum there too, recently hosting a very inspiring Archipenko exhibit. In another life when I was exploring a role as literary academic I spent six months in London writing a paper on The Bloomsbury Group (actually 2 months in the National Gallery two months at the pub and two months writing...I was young). It was then that I decided that I may not have been smart enough and I definitely wasn't sedentary enough to live that life. I raced back to Texas and enlisted my services to the Art Dept... This thread has served to stimulate much inward evaluation...a toilsome activity that I usually avoid by distracting myself with a hammer or a torch...or a soiled diaper.
