A Thought for National Arts & Humanities Month

Not many people know it, but October is also National Arts and Humanities Month. And today is Pablo Picasso’s birthday, National Fine Art Appreciation Day, and International Artist Day. So, being an artist, I thought I’d share this.

Think about it the next time a politician asks for a donation.

While I was sharing some of my artwork at a school presentation one day, out of the blue I had a student ask me,   “How can the world be made a more beautiful place?”   “That’s easy,” I said. “Fund artists and let the politicians starve."     -- Mark A. Hicks, illustrator, www.MARKiX.net

 Imagine that world.
