Art Saves!

A couple of months ago, Jenny Doh, author and former Editor-in-Chief of Stampington Publications, asked me to curate the week of January 23 to 29 at Art Saves... Doing Good through the Power of Art.  What that involved was for me to write an essay about how art "saved" me and to provide 15 individual blogs posts of others in which I found inspiration. Certainly, art did save me, as it has a lot of artists and next week you'll be able to visit blog posts from some of our favorite bloggers.  Here's the line-up ...
