"Making art in traumatized places is like making fire in the dark night of winter," says sculptor Lily Yeh. This brief interview gives a glimpse of the work of her organization, Barefoot Artists, to engage communities in inner-city America and around the world.

    In truth, many things inspire me about this video. As Lily sought to find authenticity in her own life, she is truly a lighter of light in dark places for all of us. She is deep and thoughtful, courageous and visionary. I had the honor of traveling with Lily in Taiwan this past June and felt transformed by her extraordinary heart. May her light spread far and wide! I am including a short interview I did with her for my upcoming book, Death Makes Life Possible. Her use of art to liberate the collective grief of a community offers hope for so many people.
