Heart of a Nation (2015)

7 May

heartofanation.edd.05.07.2015

I am not normally an artist whose work seeks to provoke a response.  But in this instance I guess I am.  As I look around and think about all the things going on in our nation & world sometimes I feel like the very heart of our nation is being swallowed up by these overwhelming issues that have no easy answers and too few people willing to do anything that would lead to or spark significant change.

The violence against black men in our country at the hands of police is an issue that has sparked a profound response and one that I hope leads to significant, systematic change, change that lasts and change that transforms.  We are a country that has faced its challenges in the past and I believe we must be a country that faces the challenges of the present, both those inside our borders and those outside our borders.  Our culture & way of life is at stake if we choose to do nothing.
