today i had the privilege of attending an art show dedicated to the horrors of factory farming. it included approximately 15 different pieces, and they chronicled the life cycle of how we use/abuse animals (and confuse ourselves in the process). it was quite inventive, and i found it pretty powerful. the show was called “decide,” and each piece was named with a “d” word, which i also loved. some of the ones i remember off the top of my head, in no particular order: desensitize, distress, dismember, destroy, decimate, deal, disinfect, deny. the artist (a graduating senior–this was his “senior show”) works with wood, metal, and bone and usually includes some element of animals’ skeletons in each piece. everyone there seemed to get a lot out of his work. yay!
also of note: he had plenty of literature out (the mercy for animals veg starter kit, and a whole stack of why vegan?s), two cookbooks (VCTOTW and la dolce vegan), and an entire table full of vegan cupcakes (chocolate mint, and margarita). lure them in with treats, then make ’em think, that’s what i always say!
