What a Wonderful World or Is it?

Georgiann Arbetman's avatar Georgiann Arbetman

This artwork is a mix-media collage. It portrays music through the color, artwork and photos. You will also hear "What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong playing. As a artist I have a story to tell in each piece I create. Louis Armstrong was such a great musician he became a legend in his time. When he sang "What a Wonderful World" which was written as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the US. He was brave. Another artist declined to sing because of the subject matter. I chose Pop to be in my piece because he was for civil rights for African Americans and everyone and had a story to sing. I hope I can display a card with this collage in your venue to remind people of that story and discrimination today. The frame's glass on the artwork reflects, so the artwork is not as natural in color and clarity. If you are interested in seeing the collage in person before making your selection I will be happy to show you in person.
