Words of Advice

Whether it’s finding the strength to roll out of bed in the morning or climbing a mountain, everyone needs a little bit of motivation from time to time. Here at Light Grey Art Lab, we asked many different people all around the world to share their favorite uplifting quotes with us through our You Can Do It, Put Your Back Into It show. From silly to spiritual, everyone was able to bring something exciting to the table.

At our show opening, we reached out to the community once more, and asked those who visited to give us “the best piece of advice they had received or heard.” As thanks for these extra bits of inspiration, we’re giving two lucky advice-givers a print from our show, for the best words of wisdom we received.
