"Creative Resilience"

January 9 – March 1; March 20 – April 15; April 24 – May 6, 2017

 

A UNI Permanent Art Collection exhibition co-curated by Dr. Elizabeth Sutton and gallery director Darrell Taylor, which features artworks by Salvador Dali, Eugene Berman, Elisabeth Frink, Michael Hill, Harriet Johns, Eugene Atget, and Alan and Brenda Newman among others.

 

Dr. Sutton states, "The idea for this exhibition began in the spring of 2016, a year of trauma, conflict, illogic, and frustration. The conflicts raging across the United States, and more broadly, the world, for the right to drink clean water, for the right to exist without fear of harm being done to one’s body, the right to live—these conflicts all constitute a collective gasp from women, African Americans, Native Americans, transgender and gay people, the middle and lower classes, immigrants and refugees, the disenfranchised. Stories and images of hope, of resilience, of survival—images of survivance—are needed.

 

"Perhaps a work of art in this exhibition will resonate with you and prompt reflection on your own resilience. Please share your story of resilience by going to https://sites.google.com/a/uni.edu/creativeresilience/. Select stories will be shared on the website and printed in a future catalogue of the exhibition for all to witness, learn, transform, and hope."
