Michael Brown just dropped off one of his stunning mixed media panels. This one is called MLK and has two beautiful quotes by King written subtly under the textural, numeric surface:
"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
"Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular..."
Michael Brown "MLK" mixed media on panel, 40" x 40" $2500
