Our documentary series takes art appreciation a step further: We look at the extraordinary journeys of each artist. We develop a dialogue with them and about their work. We explore what kind of impact are they having on their communities and the new ideas they are working on that transcend or explore culture, race, gender in their immediate communities.

People of color should always strive to pursue their passions. History may not have been kind to cultures of color, but history is still being made! Life Through Art looks at the distinction between these artists and the incredible work they've not only done but are STILL DOING. It's important to remain in touch with the people around us and the world we create together!
