Writer's Block: Arts v. smarts

Given the choice, would you prefer to be a world-class (visual or performing) artist or an intellectual genius? Which, in your opinion, would facilitate a more fulfilling career and social life?
Interestingly, career and social status follow intelligence up to a cut off point, past that the geniuses make less money and care less about social standing (a generality, but evidence does support it). Still, I would rather not be an artist with those choices. I'd prefer to be an unkown genius with a perchant for art...
