Bell has joined the “Lights out” campaign, which has been working to bring attention to a global epidemic that’s sweeping the globe, according to the Art Bell Foundation.
The art artist and philanthropist will join the group on the “Art Bell” tour, starting at the World Science Festival in Amsterdam on Sept. 16.
The Art Bell foundation will also host a screening of “Art” in its museum in Boston on Oct. 8.
Art Bell has become the first non-celebrity to join a global effort to address the pandemic, which he said began to feel “more real” last week.
The world is seeing a new and alarming level of infectious diseases, and this is really a time to look outside of ourselves, Bell said in a statement.
“The pandemic has become a matter of urgency,” he added.
This is not about one pandemic.
We must take urgent action.
We need to change the way we think about this.
This is a global pandemic and a global disease, and we can’t ignore it.
