It is not important in life
to be rich and famous, but to live life to one’s fullest and follow one’s
dreams as best one can. This is true success. This is not only the opening
statement in the video documentary "A Tiny Voice-at 100 Years Old" I
produced with the late George Lamboy of Regal Entertainment. It is about a 100
year old Hungarian artist/photographer who created art until the ageof
99. This message of one’s ultimate goal
should not be based on being rich and famous, but to grow and learn through
life’s lessons and journeys is also part of the message we hope artists
understand through their involvement with Art for Healing NYC Int'l org.
Artists are asked ‘How do
you want to use Art for Healing NYC Int'l org. to help your project become or
I founded Art for
Healing NYC Org as a sort of an umbrella, to guide, protect and encourage artists to
perform their role in society as teachers, to show and inspire a higher level
of perception of life to all human beings, no matter their race, religion, age,
or professional background. After 9/11 there was a record attendance to
galleries and museums. I believe that whatever profession we choose, that
exposure to the arts, and to be involved in the arts at any level enriches
When one is healed spiritually, one can heal mentally and physically.
Art, the windows to the soul; no past, present or future, white light
brings hope, creativity, healing, and a quiet peace.
