What is community? What is art? The Life Cube Project. Their mission is to get people to write down their goals, wishes and aspirations with the belief that there is a better chance of achieving them.
I met a brilliant and engaging 7-year-old boy last week at the LifeCube who wrote that he “wished to be safe”. He wrote this in his well-practiced first-grade print on a cube via the high-end, fine art medium known as colored chalk. Everyone’s wishes are welcome here. No age barriers. No socioeconomic barriers. No MFA artistic credentials required to dream. Yes, I totally dig community engagement, vision, and of course, kids like this who get to experience something that just might lay the foundation for a better tomorrow.
