What does BWC mean to me?

What is Art For?

“Art is not a thing; it is a way.”   ~Elbert Hubbard Imagine a wedding. The bride wears a special dress. Her bridesmaids wear gowns and carry flower bouquets. The groom wears a suit or a tuxedo as do his groomsmen. The guests dress up too, but are careful not to draw attention away from the […]
