Art of the Animal is a new series featuring different artists of all kinds who are speaking up for animals through their art. Earlier this month, we launched the series with a glimpse into the provocative work of visual artist Jonathan Horowitz, whose current exhibition, Go Vegan, is currently staged at a former meat-packing plant in Manhattan.
For our second installment of Art of the Animal, we are nothing short of elated to bring you musician Joy Askew. Joy is a seasoned animal rights activist. In fact, I first met Joy while doing “no foie gras” demos several years ago. But what’s particularly moving about Joy is not just her music, and not just her activism, but the absolutely heart-wrenching way she blends the two.
I’ll let the video speak — or sing — for itself.
