Much like water and oxygen, salt is such an integral part of our diet that we don’t often give it much thought past the standard dinner table inquiry of “can you pass the salt?”. But, this essential mineral does much more than just crank up the flavor in your mother-in-law’s latest and greatest casserole!

"Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful, make loneliness a shared experience, and transform despair into hope. Only art can take the holler of a returning soldier and turn it into a shared expression, a deep collective experience.
