Historical Context:
Don Kerr is an American painter and was a professor in the Grand Valley State University's Art and Design Department for many years. He has traveled the world and has painted multiple scenes while abroad. His art can be seen across the United States and around the world. He is a strong believer that art makes it possible for us to be aware of and cultivate a part of ourselves (and nature) that we have historically called “soul”- a part of each of us that, according to Kerr, is radically jeopardized by the way we live today.
