"My art is my search for the moments beyond the ones of self knowledge. It is the rhythmic fantasy; a restless streak which looks for its own fulfillment! A stillness that moves within! An intense search for my origin and ultimate identity". - Meena

The Meaning of Art: Artist and Poet Meena Chopra

Artist and Poet Meena Chopra has just released her new book: "She: The Restless Streak". Meena, Ivy Reiss, and Hugh Reilly discuss why art often doesn't pay. Why doesn't society value art and reward with money? Is art valueless? Or is its value beyond money itself and why?
