"Artists of the 21st century must rededicate themselves to a broader professional agenda that reaches beyond what has been expected of them in an earlier time. Specifically, the 21st century artist will have to be an effective and active advocate for the arts in communities large and small around the globe." — Joseph W. Polisi, President, The Juilliard School
