Artists are activists! They know how to make much out of little. From the first Cave Painters to the artists of today we make art about climate, politics, religion, pain, glory, and everything that comes into our minds. Artists tell the story of not only our planet but beyond our solar system into the universe.
Art knows no boundaries; we care about all people in every walk of life. We convey the entire range of emotions from despair to exaltation. We embrace our differences and take joy in each other’s accomplishments. We want our planet to thrive with all of it’s creatures, large and small. Artists understand we are all in this together. We will succeed together, or we will fail together. We heed the wisdom of Mother Nature while we understand we are not the ultimate authority.
My message today is to find the artist in yourself. Please respect the awesome powers of mother nature, love one another and all of G-d’s creatures and let’s all do our part to make earth healthy again. This is the only planet we have, be kind to Mother Nature, and she will be kind back. We have seen her wrath; she is way more powerful than we are.
