They can encourage and bring forth a greater understanding of humans’ impact upon the planet and the splendid rewards which rise above and defeat negative forces through positive choices. From the beginning of human history, artists have provided a record of their feelings and observations as they reflect upon an unspoiled world’s wonders and envision an optimistic future.
