Reflection on the Birth of a Nation

It is not in the cloud anywhere so the poem is elusive at the moment. It was a bit of a study of Thomas Paine and my questioning of 'What America Means to Me"? The answer I recall as "It is both sides of the coin - that I come to make - that makes America Great. "Now I am not sure how I would define both sides. Instead, I share an image and the phrase currently on my heart.…See More

Nelson 'Carty' Ford Memorial Gallery Dedicated to #SocialActionArt

Posted on February 26, 2024 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Activist Art by ARTivists is 'justice' work. It gives voice to the silenced, or marginalized, to better understand our collective humanity and the earth we share. Its public presence provides an opportunity for conversation and compassionate change. Few artists claim this space beyond the protest signs and posters. For them and their work, we offer our brave, safe creative space in Nelson's honor.

Nelson 'Carty' Ford Memorial Gallery, to be dedicated on April 30th, is an…
