I wanted to create a show dedicated to these survivors. It fell in place easily and magically once I realized that it needed to be about the art that has come after this momentous disaster.
"Art opens the closets, airs out the cellars and attics. It brings healing."
"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."
Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
"Making art is like giving a gift: evidence of your spirit and that you are here."
"Art is a wound turned into light."
When I “art,” the world around me disappears and for that moment in time, I am floating in form, color and light; it is the purest expression of peace I know.
