Shine a Light for HopeI've started a series of art illustrations to emphasize a hope I have that our country will join together as one again, as a United States of Americans-- where we are all treated equally.
I recently read an article in The Guardian about art's impact on our world during difficult times.
Hope is the precursor to change. Without it, no better world is possible.
My art is a small piece of hope for a better world.
Last week, I shared a post on how I "curate" tweets and articles by emailing to a blog: Project: A Tweet Away
Today, I found exactly what I needed for my new illustration on "building bridges." In the news again this week were more devastating problems with racism. I know we need to connect better as humans and to share our stories to help stop the increase in deaths and discrimination. So, on my curation blog, I searched for "Racism."
That's the power of curation-- the information needed truly was "a tweet away."
If you'd like to see my art and its reflection, you may find it here: United States of Americans.
The point of this blog is: Curate! Whether it's for education, art, or action/activism, you'll be glad you have saved the information you need.
Go boldly and scatter seeds of kindness... Reflect curiosity and wonder... Live to make the world less difficult for each other. ~ George Eliot
