There’s a Shaker song with the following first verse:

”Sing to all Creation new songs, not forgetting all the old.  What is best should be repeated, Let true stories be retold.”

 The arts, like life, change; we encourage new creativity, revise the old, repeat the best, and keep the arts in the forefront of our lives.
