About Arx Poetica

We live in an age of accelerated renaissance, of soaring artistic, scientific, and technological achievement. We also live in a day of baser entertainment, of degenerative popular art, and of an onslaught of filth and garbage. In many ways, it's a time of cultural warfare, when friends and relatives are increasingly divided on social media.

For many years, I have had a vision of art as a forger of community, of decency, and of identity.

The standard for meaningful and good art must be raised.
