Political Protest and Art

Images have the power to comfort us when we are in pain and the power to stir us to action when we are in danger of becoming too complacent.

We need to be comforted. And sometimes, in the very same instant, we need to be stirred up and roused to action. We can’t take the schemes of Trump and all of his cronies lying down. We can’t let ourselves become too overwhelmed. We can’t just spend all day sobbing or drinking or imagining how we might build bunkers during the apocalypse. We need to take courage, to fight back, to band together and give it everything we’ve got.

Art will help us in all of these things.

Lace up your glittery combat boots, friends. We’re just getting started.
