Carrying On

03/23/2022 to 07/24/2022

When we begin a journey of healing, we often begin looking within ourselves. Eventually, as we gain strength, we begin to seek the external world again and explore the possible relationships and connections we can make with others. We must keep in mind that the process of healing is ongoing and does not have a definitive end point.  The thirteen works in this exhibition explore different forms of coping and acts of comfort. Solitary acts, familial connections, time with animals, spirituality and faith, and experiences with nature can serve us throughout the healing process.  Take your own journey through the gallery as an opportunity to confirm, challenge, and explore your understanding of healing. We hope that the experience of art facilitates another mode of coping.

This exhibition was curated by students from the 2021-2022 University Museums Internship class: Meaghan Brennan, Louise Brosnan, Lydia Colwell, Kristen Davidson-Schwartz, Ceara Davis, Jenna Delgado, Nicole Dobbins, Ellery Huffman, Grace Kiernan, Emily Rounsley, Alexandra Shaul, Ella Thomas, and Emma Wang under the direction of M. Jordan Love, Carol R. Angle Academic Curator.
