1] Abandon the pursuit of cleverness and the admiration of experts. This will benefit the culture tremendously! 

2] Give up dependence on the insights of critics, ignore political correctness and the people will begin to think for themselves.[1]  

3] Refrain from hero worship, dismantle the machinery of creating superstars and the artistic community will flourish with richness and diversity. 

4] When the culture is lost these symptoms proliferate. Therefore, be advised: restrain ambitious desires; diminish self importance; hold tight to simplicity;[2] seek what is essential.[3]  

 [1] “We have all let anthropologists, philosophers, historians, connoisseurs and mercenaries, and everybody else tell us what art is or what it should be. But I think we ought to very simply let it be what the artist says it is. And what the artist says it is, you can see by his work. I would like to leave it just like that.”  
David Smith, David Smith by David Smith, 1968 
[2] Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.  
Albert Einstein 
[3] “Every creative act requires elimination and simplification. Simplification results from a realization of what is essential.”  
Hans Hofmann, Search for the Real and Other Essays by Hans Hofmann, 1948
