I will miss everything about our President and the First Family. They served us all with grace, dignity, and determination. Our country was blessed to have them as a stellar example of what all Americans can be. Thank you.
The visual arts are a primary theme in my novel, Provenance. Throughout the story my characters use art to enlightened, inspire, rescue, and even redeem themselves; demonstrating that art is more than just paintings and pictures. Art has impact; it is a social, political, economic, educational and cultural force.
In a recent video posted by Big Think, curator Sarah Lewis illustrates that point with images and history. Well worth watching.
