V for Vitality

“THE WAVE”. The “Wave” a special exhibition that uses art to emphasize our global connections to one another is the focus of this episode of V. The creators of the Wave share their passion for their art work inspired by the tsunami in Japan. Two extremely talented artists, Susan Hoffman Fishman, a painter with a significant exhibition history in museums, galleries and alternative spaces in New York and Boston and Elena Kalman a painter, sculptor and architect from Russia talk about how all the inhabitants of the world share the oceans and fresh water sources that sustain life on earth and provide a source of recreation and livelihood, and how we are intimately connected to one another. As The Wave travels from site to site and new sections are added to those that came before, the notion of connectivity and joint responsibility become more and more apparent. Listen and learn how you can be part of this exciting movement.
