In response to the Colorado shootings last December, Huffington Post blogger Kimann Schultz wrote about using art as a form of non-violent expression - a healthy way to express negative emotions like anger and frusteration. She urged that in the wake of such distasters, when mental healthcare is at the forefront of our minds, we keep the Arts as a relam to be tapped and a possible solution to an individual's issues.
"We humans have the capacity to express ourselves, deeply and completely, through Art in the most sublime ways possible. Even if that expression challenges us, it reflects the artist and it reflects us. How we interpret and come to understand these expressions is part of our collective evolution."
