Art And Action

Does art make me act? Without doubt in its making, cumulatively in its receiving.

The same work of art may move me to action over many years, yet have no affect at all on another. Art is hit and miss, relies on its resonance to affect, and may or may not aspire to, or do good. It is limited, but the best tool I know to reach across the boundaries of age, race, gender, culture, politics, and religion.

Can art help protect the environment? Reduce conflict? Champion love? For some, just a little.

For me, art is an expression of hope. Every little helps...
