What role and what benefit are there in community art? We find the environments
we are in are often sterile, bleak, and seldom of our making. Yet, it seems
that beauty, creativity and play are essential to our well being. We have
high art, but do not have the time to be creative, we have consumerism and
efficiency, but have prehaps devalued our playfulness, and we laud performers
for their talent, but are critics of our own eforts. Commmunity art may
be a means of expressing our various creativities, and of regaining community,
becoming participants rather than spectators.
