Buy Art not People

artists blogathon day 12  C4 Atlanta

prompt: RANT

an impassioned form of expression.

There are more slaves today on the planet than any other time in history. Human trafficking, involves women, children and men.  If there is something to truly rant about for me this is it. Why  in the name of all that is can’t we find a way to be kind, share resources, and protect those in need.  About a year ago I did a tryptch for ‘Not For Sale’ Georgia chapter of NFS.  I wish I could say that the prints sold like crazy, all proceeds going to NFS. But no they did not. And in fact in an email somewhere in this process someone said of the prints ‘ WELL you know art doesn’t sell’!  So I rant about man’s inhumanity to man. I rant about all the ways people devalue each other, including us artists; certainly less tragic, but still un-necessary.

These giclee prints on archival paper, continue to be available here on my website under tab:  NFS

    Human trafficking is one of the most important issues we can address at this time on the planet and especially here in Atlanta. Thank you for addressing it in your rant. I wrote and had a play called Traffik performed during the 2013 One Billion Rising. Thanks for the work you do on this issue.

    Sandra, thank you for your acknowledgement and also the art/work you have contributed to helping end human trafficking. I danced as well with the one billion rising in NYC, good to know we were/are rising together.
