Seerveld on cultural guidelines for artists

Calvin Seerveld has an article 'The strategy of giving away gifts: cultural guidlines for artists' in this week's WRF Comment.

Calvin G. Seerveld is Senior Fellow Emeritus in Aesthetics at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto, and the author of several influential books, including Rainbows for the Fallen World.
