How a New Deal-inspired program could put artists back to work and take on COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy—and more.
This would be wonderful. I’m an artist and my husband is a musician. We need to pay our bills, too.
This is a brilliant idea that will inform and enrich all of us when we need it the most. This excites us in a way that can not be described only experienced. Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who died yesterday at age 101, wrote that poetry creates “ecstasy somewhere between speech and song.” Art inspires us in the dimension of the Real. It will lift us beyond the pain of the present.
A creative idea and a good one!
