Art isn't just colors on canvass decorating a wall or random words strung together and called a poem. Art, through history, has played an important role in society. And artists, through their work, have provoked us to think, to see, sometimes to act. Wednesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas: Artists as social agents and art as a vehicle to spur action. It's the yearlong theme at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the hour long theme of The Sound of Ideas.
