Artful Vagabond celebrates artists who embark on projects with the potential for a positive and profound effect on our society.
Here is a selection that we hope will inspire you:
Life on the Run
Life on the Run is a micro-budget indie feature film that asks the question: “Why do art?” The short answer is because an artist must, but that is easier said than done. And that is what the film is about. In front of the camera things are guided improv while behind the camera it is cinema verité, hand-held documentary style.
The film is an optimistic and witty celebration of humanity’s will to be creative against all odds. It asks the question: “Why do art?” Why do we spend all this time in our journals, at our keyboards, out on the dance floor, painting our canvases? Why? Are we guaranteeing a life of poverty? Who will read it? Who will see it? Art is hard and the hours are weird. The film’s response to the question is because we must.
If you are an artist, your art is your primary way to view and communicate with the world. It’s something in your DNA. While it’s easy to say “one must,” it’s harder to do. That “harder to do” bit is what the film is about. Life on the Run is a BBH Digital Film Production, produced by Letitia Dayer and directed by Roger Wyatt. Life on the Run, a work of fiction, is a feature length film.
New England Art Reach
New England Art Reach’s mission is to transform traditional healthcare settings by exhibiting original artwork to inspire, enlighten and encourage patients, visitors and staff members by managing rotating art exhibits in regional hospitals.
The program also promotes and supports talented artists from throughout New England as all of the artwork is for sale, which is promoted through the New England Art Reach’s website and social media as well as through marketing materials that accompany the exhibitions.
This is a wonderful community project that supports local artists and adds beauty to hospital settings.
The Bang Bang Project
The Bang Bang Project was conceived by three social activist artists (Cesar Conde, Mignon Stewart McPherson & Renee LaVerne Rose) in order to address the nationwide epidemic of untimely deaths of individuals who have suffered social injustice through unfortunate police incidents.
Langston Hughes posed the question, “What happens to a dream deferred?” Unfortunately, today we are increasingly concerned about these untimely deaths. The Bang Bang Exhibition Tour will present Cesar Conde’s captivating large-scaled portraits while featuring the dramatic stories or dream shots of the artistic collaborators while incorporating the stories of those we have tragically lost due to unfortunate police incidents.
