I don't think we need to talk about the mess that is the world right now... So I won't. We all see it. We already know. Instead, I will focus on the good. On art. On people. Which is exactly what was done Friday, August 18th, 2017.

 

On that night, I participated in "Paint For Peace" a "pro love mural jam" hosted by All City Murals in the infamous Krog Street Tunnel in Atlanta. It's infamous since you can "tag" legally there. TONS of people of all ages came out (see how I said people and not just artist?) to paint hopeful and encouraging messages to promote peace in our country. It wasn't inspirational just because of the words or images but for the sheer fact that so many strangers united for the same cause.

Make things like this famous instead of the ugly, ya'll.

Above: My contribution to the tunnel. (Sorry for the crummy photo quality) It's the only picture I took. It's supposed to be blind lady justice showing love is equal. I am aware that she's supposed to be holding the scales in the other hand... I fact checked AFTER finishing - whoops. My memory is going in my old age, clearly.

Let me know if you see her in the tunnel!
