Gail Bohner (visual artist, artist educator) and Melissa Dey Hasbrook (writer, community organizer) use image and word to explore stories and attitudes about violence and healing. Violence is widely applied, including war, bullying, hate speech and crimes, domestic and sexual violence, and suicide. Healing is a process for survivors, including those left behind after someone’s death.
Work by participants becomes part of a community collaboration that culminates in an exhibition at (SCENE) Metrospace of East Lansing from April 27 to June 24, 2012. The workshop collages are rendered into book art by featured artists Bohner and Hasbrook for the exhibition. Collages may be selected for individual exhibition.
