ART FOR HOPE INSPIRES CREATIVITY TOWARDS CHANGE

BOOK

When unrest hits our world, individuals react differently from one another. A bold,

outspoken person may decide to organize a protest march. A scholarly, intellectual

person may want to hold a public forum to exchange ideas or discuss the issues. An

angry, out of control individual may act out and destroy property or hurt the opposing

parties.

Artists draw, paint, build sculptures and hang posters to express their thoughts and

feelings creatively.

This book is about those creative expressions that erupt around towns and cities to

affect change, influence people in power and give their communities hope for a better

and more caring world around them.

When George Floyd was tragically killed at the hands of four Minneapolis officers on

May 25, 2020, every nation around the world erupted with outrage. While protest

marches, looting stores, setting fires in the streets were taking place, artists everywhere

expressed their outrage by painting on every public surface they could find. Once the

artists had a “street voice”, they began to paint about other injustices and issues.

Plywood boards protecting store windows and doors from looting were painted with

messages about equal rights, drug reform, illegitimate incarcerations, hope for a better

future and peace.

We have compiled street art created in many communities around the USA to show you

the depth of expression inspired by recent events and on-going issues.

WE BELIEVE THAT LIFE CAN IMITATE ART, AND AN EVENT IN THE REAL

WORLD CAN BE INSPIRED BY CREATIVE WORKS
