How many of us can say that we would not know where we would be, or who we would be, without Art? I say this all of the time. Mostly in my head, but sometimes at 2 a.m. in the middle of a really deep conversation with a new friend. Art has the power to bring people together in really unique ways. Powerful ways too. And when I say Art, I mean All forms of Art. I think that is necessary to say because too often the word is mistaken for just the visual arts: painting, drawing, sculpting, etc. However, music is art, and so is dancing. But even those are obvious forms of Art. The Arts are far more complex and inclusive than the visual and performance art binary. What I want to do with this blog is to dive deeper into the meaning of Art and what it means for the artists who create it and for their audiences that consume it. More importantly these stories will bring awareness to the activism that is birthed in art.
