About OJAL Art Journal

We have two guiding principles. 1) To promote and publicize our artists and writers aggressively through social media to an appreciative audience of devoted, generous patrons, and 2) To create an atmosphere without hostility wherein important conversations concerning the arts and the human condition may be carried on rationally and civilly, away from the ideological echo chambers of contemporary world politics. We want to showcase the best visual and literary art out there. Period.
