Quote by Tony Kushner
People shouldn't trust artists and they shouldn't trust art. Part of the fun of art is that it invites you to interpret it.
This quote suggests that both artists and art should not be blindly trusted. When encountering art, whether it be visual, literary, or other forms, interpretation becomes a subjective and enjoyable aspect. It implies that relying solely on an artist's intentions or predetermined meanings inhibits the personal and diverse experience of appreciating art. Emphasizing individual interpretation encourages viewers to engage actively with the artwork, fostering a more dynamic and enriching encounter with creativity.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
