Establishing value for one’s practice is essential to gaining support in an artist’s career.  In order for artists to harness greater worth within our society, we must explore the current position many practicing artists find themselves within popular American culture, comparing it to the status of artists in other societies where artists appear to be more integrated and supported. Are things like globalism spurring change in the status of the artist throughout the world and if so, is this for the better? How have the actions of artists aided in this mentality?
