The 2016 presidential election has brought a variety of striking forms of expression regarding freedom of speech. We as citizens have fabricated an abundance of creative standpoints through paintings, photography, written pieces, fashion, and music in order to hold our stances in what we believe.
Art speaks to me. It is a way of expressing relatable matter in an unconventional way. It opens windows for interpretation and it acts as a guide towards promoting change.
I find it fascinating to see how a collective group of people who share similar viewpoints are capable of capturing their thoughts in an array of eye catching configurations. No one piece is the same and together the collection of masterpieces conform to project one message; unity.
How one is able to voice their opinion speaks great lengths.
Behind every thought is a vision and a willingness to make a difference. The motive to propel an idea forward is due to the desire to captivate the viewer’s attention in a new and favorable manner.
Freedom of expression is the key to any functioning society, for it provides a platform for those to speak their minds in a multitude of ways. Through the power to create comes the power to speak for a change. With this, the ability to convey allows for a more well rounded and artful community.
“what kind of world do we want to be apart of” -Audre Lorde
Together our creations will be the words of tomorrow.
Together we are the voice of the future.
Together we can make a difference.
