Exhibit runs through the month of October
Thanks to the support of the dA Center for the Arts in Pomona's lively downtown art district, AWBW will present its "BREAKING FREE: Art as a Healing Tool" Exhibit through the month of October in commemoration of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Curated by Sandra Mueller, AWBW's Community Arts Liaison, the exhibit will focus on the healing power of art and the resilience of women and children in domestic violence shelters. Other works on display will include a large scale Family Story Tree mural and selections from Cathy Salser's Portraits of Survivors series. Opening on October 1st, the exhibit will also feature a reception on Saturday, October 10th, and a domestic violence resource fair and vigil in honor of survivors on October 24th.
Running concurrently at the nearby SCA Project Gallery is the juried show "Shelter."
AWBW thanks in advance Artist Advisory Circle Member J. Cheryl Bookout, director of the SCA Project Gallery, and Terry Castillo, managing director for dA, and their respective boards of directors for opening their doors to mobilize the public to help end domestic violence.
