These photos (and others like it) got my attention recently on a bulletin board at Morehead State University. I immediately asked to share some of them on my blog. I don't think we can speak up enough for the value of art in our schools and in our lives. I'm both baffled and distressed that we even have to have this conversation! What is it that too many of our elected officials don't get!!??

All of us are fortunate to have all these folks recognizing how important the arts can be and how needed they are. And how enjoyable at the same time! Thank an artist today! Support art by buying a poet's book or a work of art. Explore being an artist yourself! Practice thinking and feeling outside the box!
