A THOUGHT

Like they say in the proverbial "Revolution is not a dinner party": making art for social change is not to fly a kite or in organizing potlucks for friendly cohorts. Making art is discomforting: it is to experience, to understand, and to work at knowing the unknown. It is to establish new relationships, imagine new forms, and to invent new expressions. It is not to tear down, but to replace: with human qualities that express the feelings and thoughts of people, and for the livable world. There will be no more glorifications in bronze and granite of the deceitful and the violent, but art that celebrate the living, the lives of those we touched and loved – for new times… for the ages.
