Commencement Address

“I was on a trip to Bali, where art, society, culture — everything is linked fabulously in this wonderful place. I came back, jetlagged, and was watching TV and there was this man I’d seen in Bali, who was on TV. In Balinese — I didn’t understand it but it was subtitled — he said, ‘Without art, people would not be normal.’ And that is true.” [Transcript]
