Does art really matter? Can creative expression lift us beyond the mundane, inspire us to think and feel differently, or even change our lives?
It’s getting harder to make that claim, at a time when so much of the art world has given in to commercialization. But in the post-World War II era, American artists were very serious about producing work designed to open minds and hearts. Think of John Coltrane’s dissonant jazz, or Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.
