Exhibit: Our Stories & Life’s Experiences Inform the Arts
Available: January 15th – February 25, 2016 during normal library hours.
Description: Through visual arts, stories and the performing arts – universal, multidisciplinary artists showcase how these material and performing art forms might affect our mental and physical well-being.
From an art history perspective, the four universal healing salves in many shamanic societies:
If you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions…
“When did you stop dancing?
“When did you stop singing?
“When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
“When did you stop fining comfort in the sweet territory of silence?”
