hero of the arts

DON'T ASK WHAT THE ARTS CAN DO FOR YOU, ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE ARTS!

That is Duncan's philosophy. It is Kennedyesque, but it is also all Duncan, a one man rocking machine! He is a glass blower, and he etches his glass in amazing ways. He is a charming engaging man. He is a successful artist who has made his way. The story could end there, if he were a man who only focused on himself and his success. But what makes this story unique is he did not choose to focus on himself only. He chose to help a community, a neighborhood, fellow artists, schools, and a city along the way!

The point is we can all chose to do art for ourselves and our needs or our bank account...Duncan chose to bring others along with him in his success and to be inclusive rather than excluding. To me that makes him a hero...a hero of the arts!
