Re: Artist defends surfing sculpture amid criticism

Heath:

We are addressing two issues here:

1. just compensation for an artist
2. doing the best work possible no matter the circumstances

I'm not suggesting that an artist should undersell their work. But I am saying that in a public work, or a permanent medium, the bottom line should be the integrity of the art. An artist who prefers personal comfort to doing a job right, if those are the choices, does more harm to the artistic community than those who make personal sacrifices.

The money comes and goes, but the art remains.
