That's a phrase the traveling art warrior Leigh Hyams used in our interview with her at SF's Meridian Gallery. Artists are saving the world, she says. And she means it. And if Godfrey Reggio is an example, I have to believe it. Our conversation with the maker of the films Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqaatsi is perhaps the most inspiring of any we've done.
