In an interview in yesterday’s Dispatch, artist Bennett Worrell, a member of the Artists’ League of North America, described the purpose of art as “the creation of beauty.” A spokesman for the Artists’ League has informed the Dispatch that Mr. Worrell’s statement was incorrect. The purpose of art is to convey uncomfortable truths to the bourgeoisie through the medium of offensive images. Mr. Worrell has been convicted of heresy and burned at the stake. The Dispatch regrets the error.
