Avard T. Fairbanks Art

The Philosophy of Avard T. Fairbanks, Sculptor

"The arts are created for contemplation and edification, the expression of the highest ambitions and the spiritual hope of a people. Through simple harmonies, art can bring understanding, uplift and inspiration to the down-trodden. It can recognize the finer qualities of men of all stations of life, and cause people to believe their own kind of living is worthwhile, particularly since art ennobles the struggles of life.

"Our kind of work is one dealing primarily with order... to be sure, art must be intellectual and must therfore have a thorough-going terminology, techinical — in accord with scientific terms — and philosophical as well. It should be understandable to children, the untutored, as well as the most highly learned and technically trained."

Avard T. Fairbanks, 1897-1987
