The artist has been called “ein rutler” – the disturber- the one who stirs things up. What happens when artists stir up the status quo through their art? Just how free are we to do that? What is the role of government in support of the arts in society? Come to this forum and listen to and interact with artists and legislators about the role of art in the “body politic.”
