ART speaks. The simple act of putting work on the wall gives it importance, underscores whatever language it uses. I co-founded ARTspeaks in jan. 2017 with the intent to find unheard voices in our community. We have an extraordinary opportunity to reach out, asking artists for views, perspectives, experiences, for their beliefs. What could we hear, learn, if we searched for art that spoke to our beliefs in uncomfortable ways? What might we all of a sudden not know.
Most of the work I’ve shown at ARTspeaks have poems and most are available here in IncorporationsPoetry.
