Modernformations Gallery: Signs of Survival August 1,2008

Modernformations Gallery and Performance Space Presents
Opening Reception
Friday August 1, 2008
7 to 10pm

Most of us have been affected by trauma personally or through the experience of a loved one, friend or coworker. We survive terrorism, abusive family environments, poverty, rape, environmental decay, military service inactive war zones, extreme health challenges, child abuse, and many other traumatic experiences.

This exhibit honors our survival, our journey after the trauma has occurred, and our inherent worth and dignity. It asks: How do we as individuals, family units, and communities survive traumatic events? How do we process our experience of trauma? How do we heal and build thriving relationships and lives after trauma?

Trauma survival has the power to unify us and provide common ground for communicating, healing, and planning our future. Come and join the dialogue with many artists who answer these questions in unique and powerful ways.

Experience their healing processes and lives after surviving traumatic events.

Exhibit runs to Saturday, August 30th. Closing reception from 1-4pm
ModernFormations Gallery and Performance Space 4919 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh PA. 15224 412-362-0274 Gallery hours: Thursday 6-9pm, Saturday 1-4pm, by appointment...
