Notable Quotable: Veronica Castillo's advice for young artists

"I would tell [young artists] to not fear seeing with the heart or  self-expression, but to fear to not take the challenge to do it or to remain silent about what they want to express and witness to make this a better world. When we create art, we have the capacity to leave a better world for those who come after us." -- Veronica Castillo, 2013 NEA National Heritage Fellow
