movement for peace and justice for over 20 years. He currently is a member of the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House of Hospitality in Washington DC.

Art's brother Paul was associate director of a homeless shelter in Connecticut for 10 years before he was murdered by a mentally ill man in 1999. Art has been working against the death penalty for many years but even more actively since his brother's death.

He was arrested as part of the DC-18 for unfurling a banner across the steps of the US Supreme Court in 1997 that said "Stop Executions"
