DESCRIPTION

While the therapeutic benefit of art has long been accepted, a surprisingly small number of exhibitions has focused on the work of artists seeking healing through their art. This spring, Bellevue Arts Museum is pleased to present Making Mends, bringing together a stellar line-up of national and international artists. Focusing not on brokenness, but on the sense of hope and perseverance, they come to terms with traumatic experiences through the act of creation. What is produced in response is honest, compelling, sometimes humorous, and a departure point to investigate what it is that drives the human spirit and our own path to healing.
