About Lily Yeh

Portrait of Lily Yeh

Portrait by Robert Shetterly courtesy of Americans Who Tell the Truth.

Lily Yeh

Artist, Social Pioneer : b. 1941

When I see brokenness, poverty and crime in inner cities, I also see the enormous potential and readiness for transformation and rebirth. We are creating an art form that comes from the heart and reflects the pain and sorrow of people's lives. It also expresses joy, beauty, and love. This process lays the foundation of building a genuine community in which people are reconnected with their families, sustained by meaningful work, nurtured by the care from each other and will together raise and educate their children. Then we witness social change in action.
