Report on creativity from Fast Company

The Artful Manager: Andrew Taylor on the Business of Arts and Culture: "where creativity is supported, valued, and recognized. People want the opportunity to deeply engage in their work and make real progress.'' wrote Amabile.

What is the level of creativity in the visual art community of America. Funding is low, art is attacked, and there is little recoginition for artists in the media. Creativity by its self is not art. The excuse that there are creative people working all over America is being used as a means to rationalize the removal of support from working artists. The idea that anyone can write plays or paint a painting is like saying anyone can be a doctor or design a bridge. It only allows the delusion of the value of the whole art profession.
