Election Creates New Ground for Artists

What it means to be an artist has changed since the presidential election 2 weeks ago. Artists now must use their abilities to unite the people; they must act as activists and revolutionaries to advocate for communities that have been marginalized and victims of prejudice and hate.

In this Huffington Post article, artists share how they feel their role has changed due to the election. They discuss their new mission as an artist. They also give advice to other artists during this post election time. This article is useful for us as we execute Project 4.
