It is the responsibility of those aware individuals in society who recognize malfeasances in the world around them to act with the intention of improvement. Public art is the venue to juxtapose individuals from every avenue of life in a cross pollination of words and ideas. The viewing of a sculpture can create a momentary opening in the viewer’s perception of place and time. In this opening held conventions may be questioned and alternate layers of dialogue may be injected. Stubborn complacency may be jogged into cognizance. At each layer of communication, an increasingly focused spectrum of understanding is reinforced. Knowledge is shared. Conversation and collaboration are the foundation for change.
