Description

In this Flourishing Society Dinner, Dana Gioia, renowned poet and former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, explained the importance of beauty today. He argued that beauty does not merely illuminate but transforms and elicits love. The role of the artist, then, is to participate in beauty, making things that reflect and acknowledge it.
