American essayist, Elaine Scarry, lectures on the idea of beauty to prepare us for being good people. She argues that the concept of beauty is a call to justice because fairness is the etymological link between beauty and justice. So, while justice is conventionally informed by judgment and punishment, LFM believes it should instead be informed by beauty.
“When you see something beautiful, begin to repair the injuries of the world,” Scarry says. LFM supports this concept by making art available to all.
