About this Event
Creative Resolve: The Poisons and Passions at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology
March 1-May 19, 2024
Opening reception Thursday, February 29, 4:30-6pm
Plant-based refreshments will be served
This exhibition, co-curated by Longyear Curatorial Assistant Summer Frazier and Curatorial Intern Raquel Marquez-Guerrero ‘24, explores the different ways that art leverages the creative process to metabolize conflict or aggression. This healing manifests in various forms, ranging from redefining narratives to empathizing with personal or communal losses. These artists, working in media from 2D to 3D to street and graffiti art, intentionally confront discontent, fostering creative growth and finding solutions. In this context, their art becomes a means to process pain and to construct bridges amidst conflict. In addition to art, this exhibition also explores various ways that plants can be used in healing processes.
