— David Foster Wallace, from This Is Water
"There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And the compelling reason for maybe choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship [...] is that pretty much anything else you worship will eat you alive. If you worship money and things, if they are where you tap real meaning in life, then you will never have enough, never feel you have enough. It's the truth. Worship your own body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly, and when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally plant you. On one level, we all know this stuff already - it's been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, bromides, epigrams, parables: the skeleton of every great story. The trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness."
The 2018 Mill City Art Show is hosted by Craft Northeast: a group of artists and creatives of all levels who meet regularly to nurture both their own creativity, and help the entire arts community of Minneapolis flourish. While the group is a part of Mill City Church, the mission of this show is to listen to the community and create a platform for voices of all backgrounds and belief systems, and not to preach or proselytize our own message.
