Not sure what that means.

Are you suggesting that an artist has an obligation to people who look at his art.

I kind of get the musician/concert thing because the "customer" has paid money to attend and there "may" be a certain obligation to deliver what the customer expects, but most art is not paid for by the public and as such an Ansel Adams has no obligation to just photograph mountains.
