Abstract/ Summary

This statement by Sandy Ives at a meeting of the Maine State Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Orono, Maine, February, 1981.

"I have no desire either to tilt windmills on the one hand or to defend the obvious on the other, yet I will risk both to make a simple plea not so much for greater breadth as for greater depth in support for the arts, for reaching out to help more people celebrate what it is in life that touches them and moves them to create significant forms that can be shared with others. I am not talking about educating people, raising their level of taste, or bringing art to the people — all, I concede, worthy enough causes in their own right. I am talking about meeting people where they are artistically."
