Do you think that artists have power to change public thought? To inspire action?

Have you been moved to act?

Have you been outraged?

How has art changed YOU?

Jana Absolutely! I feel art moves the soul and has the abiltiy to open our eyes to what's happening in the world around us.

When something needs to be pointed out, sometimes voicing it plainly doesn't get through to people. It's being able to touch them in a way where they don't feel as if they're being preached to.

Jesus told parables. He didn't point and say things bluntly. He was creative in His storytelling and left it in the other person's court to interpret what He said. That's what all forms of (good) art does too.
