So many of us have been influenced by the arts and so many lives have been transformed by its power. Whether it's the written or spoken word, the visual arts, the playing of instruments, the singing of songs, fierce choreography, clothing or hair design, interior decorating, gourmet cooking, quilting or the myriad other artistic mediums that exist on the planet, we have all experienced the power and impact of art in action, and, creation in motion. Whether we are the artists sharing these phenomenal gifts or the witnesses and recipients of the energy and light that vibrates during these powerful sensory experiences, everyone is transformed by the contribution that art has been, and continues to be, for mankind. Tonight's show will explore the power of the arts and its many facets. Our panel of guests will share how their gifts were discovered and developed, as well as, how they navigated the world of the arts once they discovered the call for their lives. They will also share their views about the state of affairs in the artistic worlds in which they live, breathe, dwell and create. Join us for a dynamic discussion with guests, Erwin Thomas, actor, poet, activists and advocate; Keith Richards, lyricist, poet and MC and Logan McCoy, poet, writer, and teacher. Tune in, call in, weigh in. You don't want to miss it.
