To get your message into the community, make a piece of art (collage, painting, handmade item, photo, sculpture from found objects, poem, whatever) and donate it to a local non-profit organization as an auction item for a fundraiser. Help someone else or an organization that can continue to provide a service for your community.
My donation is to a local cystic fibrosis fundraiser. Sixty-five artists were given the task to paint a rose. Of course I had to do the opposite of something realistic and expected when you think of a rose. Even though it doesn't convey my message I wanted to put the idea of donating art in your head.
