Non-Starving Artists

Why do we accept that in order to make great art, we have to be penniless, starving, and suffering?
It's not a foregone conclusion, but it might be a self-fulfilling prophecy. So let's stop saying it.
...I want for artists to be thought of as safe and financially sound

(from Angela Sauer's blog). When was the last time you paid $12 to see a movie, or more than $90 to see a play starring actors who didn't make rent this month... likely never (if you don't count actors just starting out who are your friends ;-).
