The Beauty of Artistic Community

Curator Magazine articles pop into my email box almost daily with interesting perspectives on a variety of subjects.  This morning “The Beauty of Americana” caught my eye.  The writer talks about folk music and the power of creating our art in community.  Have a look… it is worth the read.  ~jd

“If my theory is correct that it was the communal aspect of the creation of this album that makes it stand out, “Let There Be Beauty” is the quiet anthem of that sort of artistic community:

So, let there be beauty,
For beauty is good,
The made and the making
And the bliss understood.
So, let there be beauty,
For beauty is free,
Come swim in the waters,
Come drink from the stream.”
