Art plays an important role in each of our lives, and for many, it's become an art form that helps give voice to what's happening within and around us. And for some, it's become a way of life and a trade. We're so grateful for the number of artists who have quickly answered the call to not only donate their talents to support ArtVan, but also to offer their own stories through the lens of hat-making.
Sophie Hill, artist behind the hat, 'Epiphany', shares, "In a world where many of us are taught to conform and get in line, it is so important to support and cherish those enterprises which support authentic individual expression, like the ArtVan. For me, creating things from seemingly random components, has helped me to have deeper appreciation for the chaotic aspects and expressions of myself and come into greater acceptance of being."
