Art and Eating Disorders

This exhibit is about expressing those parts of the experience of living with an eating disorder that are difficult to put into words. Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making – creating art and reflecting on the products and processes helps people increase awareness of self; cope with symptoms, stress, and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.

A Peace of My Mind

Founded in 2009, A Peace of My Mind is a multimedia art project that fosters public dialogue about issues related to conflict resolution, civic responsibility, and peace. With black and white portraits and oral histories, over fifty subjects describe what peace means to them, how they work toward it in their lives, and some of the obstacles they encounter.
