April at Urban Arts Gallery: “Pale Blue Dot”

e Dot (Urban Arts Gallery)

“There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” – Carl Sagan
