New Art Center presents Art As Salve
March 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Rooted in the concept of Healing Justice, Art as Salve showcases responses and interventions to generational trauma and violence with the hope of impactful change to mend our bodies, hearts and minds. The exhibit, Art as Salve, asks the question – how might art function as a holistic intervention for survivors of oppression and violence? What would happen if art was used as a symbol for healing? Visit the New Art Corridor to see these introspective works and share in this healing process with New Art Center, the artists, and the community around us.
This exhibition is a part of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Curatorial Program. As a community arts education space, the New Art Center believes that art creates change. With a 44+ year history of building community through art, we recognize it is crucial to use our platform to fight systemic racism and social injustices.
The BIPOC Curatorial Program enables curators who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color to develop and share exhibitions that spark dialogue, share personal vision, and personal experiences through curation. We hope this opportunity will create much needed dialogue to counter systemic racism.
