Words are Useless

Words are useless appreciates and respects expression outside of common words and language- through the power of art.  This special section highlights the work of an artist who incorporates feminist and social justice aspects into their art's meaning and message.  See how many of the artists we feature take common, popular images and expose their hidden meanings and agendas through their artistic expression. 

Digest magazine is proud to promote art that inspires positive change and honest awareness, no matter how "shocking," "uncomfortable," or "dark."  Please, if you have art you would like to share, let us know!  We ask that you send a high-quality JPEG or GIF of the image along with the title, your preferred name, the year it was created, the type of medium, a short bio of the artist and their purpose, and a short blurb on the meaning and purpose behind the work.
