About Vital 5 dotted line

Vital 5 Productions believes that all people hold the capacity to express themselves through art, and that self-expression and our ability to communicate through art is what defines us as human. It is a mission that does not end at 5:00 p.m., or if we run out of money, or get old, or move to a different city. We want to know why our culture celebrates shallow idols and even emptier ideas. Why a society that prides itself on freedom and independence consumes so much junk. We believe that the arts hold the cultural salvation for our minds and our cities, and that the current model of art in America is lifeless and ineffective. What critics we are! We have a strong suspicion that the modern art world has lost its rudder and no longer holds a grasp on the fundamental purpose of art, that it rarely celebrates the courage of a new idea, that it intentionally segregates itself from popular culture (not to be confused with hip culture) and, as a result, made the art world boring, uninspiring and pretentious.

Of course, this is just an opinion, and we might be entirely mistaken. But just in case, we founded Vital 5 Productions to serve as a vehicle to explore, experiment and challenge the idea of what art is, who it should serve and exactly what defines an artist. Art saves the world every day. Even running on 2 cylinders, with rusty valves and bad plugs, it communicates daily that we are not alone, we are not inherently bad and that we have a chance. Think of us as a group of mechanics who are committed to getting all 12 cylinders roaring and just see if we can't create a better world. It might sound cheesy, naïve, and hopeless, but stranger things have happened.

Welcome to the unlikely world of Vital 5 Productions!
