I hadn’t given my current public art project a name, nor had I created a video to promote it. Both sort of evolved with each other this past weekend. As I was putting images together for the video, and as I was reviewing research and other articles, a thought kept going through my mind.
The writing is on the wall.
We use this phrase as an ominous warning that, if we do not pay attention to the obvious, we will face dire consequences.
We need to pay attention to the fact that many children and animals in our world are facing dire consequences. We need to look at both and find ways to help them to safety, and we need to aid children affected by domestic violence in dealing with the emotional turmoil in their lives.
Since the images to be employed for the latest mural are of children drawing on a wall, it occurred to me that there was a parallel meaning there.
The video is done, and the title reflects the importance of the the Okey’s Promise mission.
The Writing, and the Drawing, is on the Wall.
