You are a very judgemental person. It is not your place to decide whether a life has value because someone is or is not helping a sick person or adopting a child. We all have a role to play and somewhere along the line folks need to accept artists as working members of society. After September 11th the museums in New York City were free. The reason being is that art can offer a healing and folks were in great need for something to feel better and who knew how that would come. But instinctively we chose to sit quietly in front of a painting or write poetry. Art is not "just a hobby". It is a calling worthy of your respect. I am an artist and yes....I serve humanity, more than you know. Where would we be without Mozart, Michelangelo, Picasso and ...oh yeah, Ansel Adams.
