I've never been into the vision board thing, but I do update this board at work occasionally for inspiration to show up and do my job well every day. These are artists I love, many of whom I have seen perform, and many of whom have reached communities in the south due to the work I do.
I'm 31 years old and most of my life has revolved around my love for art. Now, with the Trump administration's proposal to cut the National Endowment for the Arts completely, I'm faced with the reality that I may not have this job - which I love - for much longer.
The arts preserve our heritage and feed our soul. They help us express loss and sorrow and joy and jubilation. They add to the economy. Access to the arts is correlated with academic success. Art therapy is being used to rehabilitate veterans with PTSD and to reach children on the autism spectrum. Art is important. This is one of the things worth contacting your legislator about. #savethenea @neaarts #nationalendowmentforthearts #artworks
