Insightful Words: Can Art Change the World?

Last night, Michael and I spent hours re-watching our favorite TEDTalk videos. Out of all the inspiring videos we watched, one of my favorites from 2011 still stood out to me the most. I thought I’d share JR’s amazing project and wish for those who may not have seen it yet.

Art is not supposed to change the world, to change practical things, but to change perceptions. Art can change the way we see the world. Art can create an analogy. – JV

Truly inspiring. A year later, the project has exploded all over the world. I’ve been following JV’s project website at, and I must say its reshaped my perspective on the power of art.
