Art show to premier at the American Atheists conference.

Art show to premier at the American Atheists conference. March 15, 2013

I got a press release from American Atheists in my inbox the other day that made me smile (which is good, because so far my day has been filled with insipid commenters who think lending tacit support to high-ranking Catholic criminals makes them better than me).  At their 50th anniversary conference in Austin later this month they will be having an atheist art show.

“We’re positively thrilled to offer what we believe is the first art show at an atheist convention,” said Dave Muscato, Public Relations Director. “There are so many wonderful artists in the atheist community, and we’re proud to give them a chance to show off, and help a good cause at the same time.”

“This is an idea that’s long overdue,” said President David Silverman. “In the past we’ve had many exhibitors and attendees who are artists, and an art show was simply the next logical step. We couldn’t be happier about it.”

This is spectacular.  You can have all the facts and be 100% right, but if nobody wants to hear your message those things won’t do you a lot of good in changing minds.  Music, art, performance art, they all help us show other people that atheism and giving a shit about what is true is very, very beautiful.  We need more Keith Lowell Jensens and Shelley Segals.  We need more Ellen Lundgrens, and we need to give them a prominent seat at the table.

I could not be more excited about this.
