Art is above the
temporary sway of policy
and the seasons of politics,
for the work of art is universal work
and it is the work from and for history.
Art is the knife that slices into
and probes the guts of the human condition;
so, from the ancient Greeks to the work of artists
in the richly diverse fields of exploration today,
the meanings that provoke and inspire us
as mortal beings in this temporal world,
remain the same and find new spaces
in the quests of artists to find
the possible in the now.
