Creative America

Excerpt

This book has been created for the National Culture Center. The national center for the performing arts is about to be built in Washington. Creative America is conceived in its spirit. It is a book about creation in all the arts. It is not a survey or an encyclopedia But it is an attempt to picture the circle of creation: It starts with the sources of inspiration. It shows work beginning--the first struggle with an idea and the attempt to put it on paper, or on canvas, or in stone, or on stage. Elation is there as the work advances. So is dejection. There is the finished work--and its audience. The circle continues as learning begins and youth reaches out for new aspirations. The circle comes full. When man creates, he is affirming his individuality and his humanity. This book, like the National Cultural Center, is dedicated to that spirit.
