 Greg The Art of Stewardship

The Art of Stewardship’s mission is to encourage the
use of the arts to support Stewardship of the Earth

The Arts have always had the ability to transcend language, culture, and the centuries.

Since the dawn of our collective human memory, art in its myriad forms has expressed our hopes, our fears, and our loves while also serving as an interpretive record of the world around us.

Then as now, the voice of Art remains a powerful communicative tool.

In this, the new millennium, the realization that we indeed live on ‘One World’ carries with it responsibilities never dreamt of by our distant ancestors as they expressed their visions on cave walls and with carved fertility icons.

We now recognize the fragility of our planetary home and the profound role each of us plays in the drama of life on Earth.

Now more than ever the ‘Artist’ will play an ever-increasing part in a cast that must include all of humanity.

The ‘Art of Stewardship’ is in fact a calling out to those who speak the language that is universally understood.

One that has the potential to raise awareness, inspire and celebrate our role as ‘Stewards’ of our tiny oasis in space.

At this point in history no challenge is more important or more immediate in nature. Our very survival depends on it.

Knowing this, I call on artists worldwide to help bring the notion of ‘Stewardship’ to the forefront of our conversations and consciousness.
