Remarkable Ways To Share Our Stories Through Art

I went to see the art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, titled Fabric of Survival,at the Columbus Museum of Art and what was particularly interesting is why and what age Esther started making these  Embroidered Story Panels.
The exhibit was stunning, and also a reminder that it's never too late to find a way to share our stories, be it through photography, embroidery, paint or drawing.
