Man does not simply exist but always decides what his existence will be, what he will become in the next moment. — Viktor Frankl
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to hang out with my friends at Arrow Institute of Art. I’ve been involved with Arrow since its development stages last fall, and I’m thrilled about what they’re doing in downtown Augusta. Their desire is to develop lasting relationships with inner-city kids and use art as a redemptive tool for social change.
The kids were working on portrait collages this week. I was inspired by the unique vision each of these young creators expressed through their art.
I was given a few minutes to share my own art. Boy, those kids can SING!! Here’s a fun video of our time together:
Looks like a good time, right?? There are some great photos posted on Arrow’s blog post about it HERE. Be sure to click around the website while you’re there and check out some of the work they have displayed.
It’s encouraging to see such a beautiful initiative taking place here in town. I encourage you to look for opportunities like this in your own community (if you can’t find any, dream one up and make it happen!).
Together, I believe we can be conduits for redemption in our communities. I’m grateful we’re on this journey together!
We did an impromptu photo session on the road to ATL a couple weeks back. Check out the blog post: annagarnerphotography.com
