Violence Transformed’s 2010 season of visual and performing arts events expanded once again with Lesley University’s Division of Creative Arts in Learning joining with Cambridge United for Peace and Justice to co-host Lesley’s first Violence Transformed exhibit. That exhibit was followed exhibits at the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists, Roxbury Community College, the State house, Wheelock College and Children’s Hospital; a “Trauma and Healing Poetry Reading” at The Burren in Somerville, MA; a performance of “And Still We Rise”; and an exhibit of works by and panel discussion with the Combat Paper artists at Harvard University’s Gutman Library. Quite a roster!
Highlights: At our Annual 2010 State house Exhibit, Violence Transformed awarded the artists of Combat Paper our first Violence Transformed Artist Honorarium and, at Harvard’s Gutman Library, sponsored an exhibit of their work and a panel discussion with them by commentators including Artist Mark Cooper of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and psychiatrist Jonathan Shay (MacArthur Fellow and author of Achilles in Vietnam).
