Art is Life

It is art that defines a place.  What would New Orleans be without French Quarter Jazz?  How has the demolition of 5Pontz in NYC moved the public mural movement forward?  It is up to us to support those who can speak in a more lasting manner to move forward the next generation.  Bring art, culture, music, and joy where it is needed most; where the stories are pure and cut deepest.  Help a neighborhood tell its unique story through public art, a child dance through the streets, and memories to be preserved through frames of time caught by photographs and videos.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” – Thomas Merton

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter."

Ansel Adams

The art of a people is a true mirror to their minds."

Jawaharlal Nehru

Clay can be dirt in the wrong hands, but clay can be art in the right hands."

Lupita Nyong'o

You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul."

George Bernard Shaw

Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics."

Victor Pinchuk
