Nice and Berlin continue to heal from attacks with the help of art

Press release from: Sabelskjold Art Agency

I have the best job in the world. So much so, I don't think anyone could call it a job.

Sabelskjold Art Agency is surrounded by some of the most talented and giving people in the world. The artists and companies we are so lucky to work with have only one mission - to bring beauty and joy to the world.

In a time with so much turbulence and so much fear, it is easy to lose sight of all the ways artists are important to keeping this world together. Artists captivate the world, making us think and look beyond ourselves. Artists transcend hate, fear, terrorism and misunderstanding. Artists help us to feel joy and heal wounds.

Many people in the world who read about a terrorism attack may feel some sadness, fear or anger. After a few hours or days it is life back to normal. That is one of the most powerful things about human beings is the ability to adapt, compartmentalize and move on.

However, for the cities that experience these horrible unthinkable acts it is a different story. The scars for the cities of these attacks never fully heal. There are always memories about the awful things that took place. As an American living in Nice, France, I have experienced the long lasting effects terrorism has on the people and the cities where these tragic acts take place.

I believe healing takes time and coming together to express your sadness and anger is a healthy part of that process. That is why I was so happy to hear that Berlin and Nice were coming together for a meeting of solidarity for the victims of the terrible events that took place in these cities.

I am extremely proud that my friend and artist that I represent was personally invited to showcase one of his bronze sculptures. Michel Anthony is an inspiration in perseverance and acceptance.

Michel presented a masterful bronze sculpture entitled “Unity and Liberty”.
VISUAL : A bird taking flight which signifies freedom. Five hands holding one another and emerging from the globe, each hand in different color symbolizing the peoples of the five continents. The hand at the summit is in polished bronze (neutral) to show that no race is superior than others.

Michel’s work embodies equality and acceptance. In this time of pain and fear, we need artists to help show us the way. There is good in the world, there is vivid color, there is hope, and there is acceptance.

I know a great deal of healing occurred by Berlin and Nice coming together. It is a wonderful step to bring these two amazing cities together in this tragic time. My heart goes out to everyone affected by terrorism, and I am thankful that artists can bring some consolation to the families and cities affected by terrorism.

Thank you Michel and all the artists that attended the event.
