“When we say that we’re special, we define artists as ‘other’ or different. By putting artists up on that pedestal, we actually make it harder for our communities to see their value. In an effort to validate the work of artists, we end up mythologizing the idea of artists. By trying to prove how rare, how talented, how special; we end up reinforcing a stereotype that there is a chasm between ‘real people’ and ‘artists’.”
