Archive 2015

2015, our 9th year, marked ongoing expansion and achievement. Between March and September, we held 9 Violence Transformed exhibits: 2 at Lesley University; 3 at RCC’s Media Arts Center; the John Wilson Retrospective Exhibit at the Museum of the National Center of Afro American Artists; the Annual Statehouse Exhibit; Ubuntu Arts at Wheelock College, The Artist’s Voice at the Harriet Tubman Gallery, and Art Speaks Truth to Power at Cambridge College. Moreover, in the Fall, the African American Master Artists in Residency Program at Northeastern University began planning “Sankofa,” its first Violence Transformed exhibit and Gloretta Baynes, Chair of AAMARP, co-curated a Violence Transformed exhibit for the second year running (last year at Lesley, this year at RCC).
Highlights: In addition to an impressive roster of exhibits, Violence Transformed achieved two important grants, allowing us to diversify our programming, serve new audiences, and preserve our near decade-long history. The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Presidential Humanism in Medicine Grant Award made it possible for us to sponsor a series of six Artist-Led Workshops for Health Care professionals, and a David Bor Library Foundation Grant to create a digital archive of Violence Transformed. Finally, a major highlight of Violence Transformed 2015 was our transition from Cambridge Health Alliance as our fiscal sponsor, to a new fiscal sponsorship alliance with the Public Health Advocacy Institute in Boston.
