Throughout history, artists have sung hope into our times of deepest desperation, broken the back of despots with the stroke of a brush, inspired generations with well-crafted words, and captured indescribable moments with the click of a shutter. Artists give voice to the silent, forge bonds between the disconnected, scribe histories otherwise unrecorded, and manifest our personal and collective dreams. For these reasons and for the sake of our future, my life's work is in support of artists. About :
