"I think of art work as social activism. I live as an artist in the world to tell the stories of people who live on the margins. Our work as artists is to evoke emotion and inspire thought, whether it's a direct call to action or simply seeing the person next to you who you might have ignored before because they are so different from you." -- Jacqueline Lawton
