Thursday Thoughts: Receivers of Art

Be a receiver of art rather than a consumer. A consumer gorges himself on what he “likes” and contemptuously ignores the challenging or the unfamiliar. A receiver stands under a work of art and lets it speak. He realizes that it takes an act of love to make and share a work of art and an equal act of generosity to stop and listen.

Do you know any artists? Stop and listen to what they’re saying. Accept their gift.
