Just south of the chicken statue on Broadway, Chinatown’s Statue of Liberty

Is it about looking and that inevitably when we do, we reach beyond yourselves?

Is about finding in others things worthwhile to support and so finding one’s self strengthened?

Is it about asking questions of what we find, holding a mirror up to the person who makes and to the thing made?

What if we determine that the only way to create the world that we want to live in is to live as though it already exists?

What if belief can be a tool for artistic inquiry – belief in possibility as a natural fact, faith that the people with whom one engages in this inquiry may also guide one.

What if art is a social union and not a placeholder in a sterile intellectual environment.

What happens when eleven artists come together who, through their ongoing practices, engage with other artists, create challenges to the social status quo and who, by their actions, help to create the world in which we work?

What if they have fun doing it, and so do you?

Come to the Lighthouse on May 19. Have more fun than a body should be allowed.
