The Deadline Ended

 "The Arts in the Service of the Lord" is one of the thoughts I continue to explore and hope the celebration of Hanukkah will expand and deepen the legacy of my family, friends and colleagues.  We invite you to join Art Impact International and Carolyn Goodridge’s artist presentations in the first of these Holiday traditions. - Dr. Sandra Epps

Art is the perfect vehicle to raise awareness of specific cultural practices.  Beautiful art is the best way to draw attention to today’s threat of polarization and colonization resulting in death and destruction of human culture.  Art and discussion connect with people on an emotional and mental level. Spending time listening to each other is an excellent way to understand each other.

Art Impact® International intends to show people the impact artists have on the planet.  Can art help humanity come together as one?  We think so.  If you are an artist and want to make a difference then submit your work, join the artist call for entries and see how you can make a difference with your art. We've facilitated this positively artful platform to help the general public to learn more about what Hanukkah is.

Submit your entry to exhibit your artwork if you want to help the world understand the meaning of Hanukkah.  Art Impact International facilitates exhibitions that will offer artists the opportunity to have a positive impact on the planet, and to understand each other better.  Practice global citizenry.  - Carolyn Goodridge, Curator

“I want there to be a place in the world where people can engage in one another’s differences in a way that is redemptive, full of hope and possibility.”  From social activist bell hooks’ book, “Reel to Real: Race, Sex, and Class at the Movies”

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” From activist Andrew Boyd’s “Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe”

All accepted artwork will be included in the 3-D gallery group art exhibit, video and A.I.I. web page.
