Failed Art, We All Have Them!

Here’s a word of encouragement if you’re struggling. This is the spirit behind this weblog that I am running.

I think it’s such a disservice to the public that galleries and museums display only artists’ successes, but never their failures. There should be a Museum of Failed Art. It would exhibit all the terrible art that would have ended up in trash bins and garbage cans, lost and unknown to the public. My museum would give a true picture of the artist’s life, and provide much consolation to fellow artists. — R. O. Blechman (Dear James: Letters to a Young Illustrator)
