Art for Arts sake

A philosophical series of questions, not exactly looking for an answer here.

Should art be for arts sake? Not for some other higher purpose? Is the purpose of the art that it inspires you to look beyond?

Lets say somebody is dependent on you for a living. can you then continue with creating art for art's sake without caring about your family?

Or let us say you are hired for a design firm where your seniors preferences are very different from yours. What do you do then?

Where does the line between integrity and income come in? What is wrong with doing things just to make something out of them? Is it such a bad thing at the end of the day? Why do we make villains out of those that focus on commerce?
