Far too many people feel that artists don’t contribute to society when that’s far from the truth. Art is all around us: the music we listen to, the TV shows we watch, the video games we play. Without artists, bookshelves would be empty because there would be no one to write the novels we read; magazines wouldn’t exist because there would be no graphic artists to put the spread together; websites would be devoid of images because there would be no photographers to capture the world around us with their cameras.
