BLEUEposted by Jennifer Jean Okumura
“Bleue”— my heart feels two things, intensely and at the same time, for the needed conversations and actions taking place around the injustices and inequities we’ve all seen and have been talking about of late. My first feeling is, as I’m sure it has been for all of us, intense pain – for lives lost, for opportunities cut short, for the systemic problems that our country at times makes only halting progress towards addressing. But my heart also feels intense hope as we change with the world. This is our task as Artists—as humans and I can’t think of a group of practicing Artists better equipped to take this on.
