Random Gifts of Art: The Giving and Receiving of Life's Meaning Paperback – 2015
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

What started as a personal connection project of a noted artist and an international speaker, handing out original drawings to random strangers morphed into a social creativity project spanning the world. A gift derived from one's excess seems trivial only to oneself. But an element that one minimizes in one's own life can be transformed into a valued richness by another simply recognizing it as such. We can build a kind of social glue on generosity, with a tiny stroke of imagination applied in just the right place. Two people share their problems and find a common solution that opens up the world in new ways for both of them. Giving away art, connecting with strangers, enlivening rather than killing time, the world is transformed. Find out more of the story at: RandomGiftsofArt.com
