I said that later on I would discuss how art touches on morality (see Censorship Part 1). This is that post. While it will discuss some of the ideas presented in Art's Gift to Wisdom, I hope to make a case that art is not just a stopgap for ethics (though it does that too). No, at the bottom of every worldview is an appeal to the heart. I would say it's an appeal to beauty, but I don't want to give the wrong impression, and I believe it's more than just rhetoric as well.
