ABOUT STEVE LAMBERT
Steve Lambert is the co-founder of the The Center for Artistic Activism (artisticactivism.org), a non-profit that trains artists to be more effective activists and activists to be more creative change agents. With the Center, Steve has trained more than 1000 artists and activists in over 14 countries. For Steve, art is a bridge that connects uncommon, idealistic, or even radical ideas with everyday life. In 2008 Steve worked with hundreds of people on “The New York Times Special Edition,” a utopian version of the paper announcing the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other good news. In 2011 he built a 20 × 9 foot sign that reads CAPITALISM WORKS FOR ME!, allows passers by to vote TRUE or FALSE, and is touring it across the United States. His work has been shown everywhere from marches to museums both nationally and internationally, has appeared in over fourteen books, and four documentary films.
