"Art is creation and innovation," Lauren Hodges, cofounder of Art for Action and encore's arts writer, says. "No matter what the medium, all artists should feel proud to be a part of that piece of society that keeps the humanities alive. Anyone who considers [him] or herself a creator, who strives to make people think with their creations, who keeps the world asking questions and expanding its comfort zones, is an artist."
Art for Action was founded when Lauren, along with friend Addie Wuensch, noticed just how many people in Wilmington's creative community really had something to say-and used their art to express themselves.
"There were painters, poets, fashion designers, musicians, writers, photographers, filmmakers and others [who] were using their talents to speak to the world," Lauren elaborates.
Art for Action was founded when Lauren, along with friend Addie Wuensch, noticed just how many people in Wilmington's creative community really had something to say-and used their art to express themselves.
This inaugural event will consist of a great deal of visual art, although Lauren notes a goal to feature at least three mediums at every exhibit.
While talking to Robert Delford Brown upon getting him onboard, Lauren and Addie admitted struggling to narrow down a specific theme for the event.
"That was actually perfect because I had been wanting to do something involving the Titan Cement Plant," Lauren says. "That is, without a doubt, the biggest threat facing our local environment. So, having talked to the people over at Friends of Lower Cape Fear (those who run, we geared up for an eco-central show and decided to focus upon environmental art."
With a theme in place, all the artists involved decided to donate to the cause from their sales individually, with a portion of donations collected at the door to benefit and the rest going directly to Greenpeace USA. "I think a lot of people are drawn to environmental events right now," Lauren adds.
"Through Art for Action, the community can form a bond with artists and look to them for inspiration and support about philanthropic issues," Lauren asserts.
"Art has the power to draw attention," Lauren observes.
"The arts are in grave danger of being cut out of national budgets," Lauren warns.
