This is an exhibit of healing and memorial as we struggle to process feelings and acknowledge the fallout of recent tragedies, hardships, challenges, alternative facts, and protests, that test beliefs, relationships, and loyalties, exposing who we are, and what we need to mend and cherish.
During this extraordinary time of polarization and hyperbolic hubris, Mother Nature unites us through the Pandemic and global warming, reminding us who/what’s in charge, and that our “Dirt Nap” is guaranteed.
A portion of sales will be contributed to the Bridgeport Art Trail. www.bridgeport-art-trail.org
