Wishing for compassion will not deliver change. Compassion, by itself, is not a tool for creating happiness. Nor is it an emotion. Compassion is a way of being, an enduring feature of who we are. Compassion has us recognize the suffering in others, along with a commitment to help alleviate that suffering.
Art is a powerful medium for education, because it wakes us up and reminds us of who we are and what we are here for. It courageously shows us what is taking place in our neighborhoods, and how we are often subsidizing atrocities without ever knowing about them. It is only when we are willing to face the world as it is and engage in an honest, non-violent and solution-focused dialogue, that we can begin to affect change.
Museum of Compassion...
Education is the bridge to compassion, and our intent is create the first working museum of its kind in the world--designed to illuminate, educate and lift our animal welfare consciousness to new heights. We have painted over 5500 portraits of dogs who died alone and forgotten in U.S. shelters. With your support, we will be able to permanently display this inspiring exhibit and build a forever fund that will distribute 100% of your donations towards the salvation of shelter animals.
