Life Warriors : “Fighting the Good Fight”

From left to right: Brown Lethem, Suzanna Lasker, Peg Mascher and Mary Becker Weiss 

“The relentless cycle of bad news, the politics of greed and the clear and sinking knowledge that the soul of America is rapidly disappearing felt like a terrible weight to carry. Many years of attending meetings and participating in marches didn’t lift my hopes. ARRT!’s process of collaboration in image making, of working together to define the essence of a message in visual terms is a joyous, hopeful and extremely useful endeavor. As a visual artist and activist I feel like I’m using my expertise to assist hard working, inspiring people who are out there fighting the good fight for our American soul.”  ~ Nora Tryon, Maine Artist/Activist 2016
