Art is powerful, isn’t it? It can give hope to the hopeless and meaning to the mundane. As artists, I believe that it is of utmost importance that we take what we do seriously. It’s time for a to call to arms.
I’m not much to talk politics or to give you my unsolicited opinion but I think we can all agree that we are living in a very interesting time. One filled with fear, hate, and disunity. This is where the artists need to come in. I truly believe that it’s our job (and a very important one) to rise up and begin to speak through our creative expression.
No, I’m not saying that you need to spread more fear, hate, or disunity in your art, but I am saying that you need to speak from your heart. The goal in my art is to spread hope and inspiration. This is what I am talking about when I say you need to speak through yours. Whatever is near and dear to your heart needs to be clearly expressed with purpose and power. It’s time to rise up and let your art speak.
No matter what you are feeling today let me encourage you that your voice is needed and must be expressed.
We need you!
