art quote – Campos-Pons 2.7.2019

“I always tell my students in every class: We are here because of art. We are sitting in this room talking and sharing because of art, but not just because this is an art class. We are here as humans because art is our safe keeper. Our destiny keeper. The landscape of our journey. We are here as a result of that. We draw to survive. We paint to survive. We paint to eat. And that gives us the energy to keep moving. We need to imagine where we are before we become something new, and that is only through art. This is what it is. Now we just dream what it could be… and all the windows are open.”

From an interview at The Creative Independent with María Magdalena Campos-Pons
