Art Can Change/Reflect The World

“As is art’s purpose, her work [22-year-old poet Amanda Gorman], like a thunderbolt, electrified the imaginations and spirits of those watching. Like a heart-shock in the midst of a ritual in danger of turning platitudinous, her art, afire and advancing in its ideas and execution transfixed, comforted, inspired, explained and expressed, in five minutes — in 723 words — what a million minutes or words without art could never achieve.” Quoted in an article from Painter’s Keys .

This short article underscores the potential power of art to bear witness, explain in simple terms, illuminate!
