Art on Emotion  Making Connections ‐ How are you doing?

September 26th – December 17th, 2010                   Somerville Museum

The Capacity to Live a Full & Creative Life: this is what we want for our children, our youth, and ourselves! Come to a community-created art exhibit featuring art created by Somerville artists ages 8 to 88.

Art heals. We can express things we can’t express with words. Visually dealing with traumatic emotions can feel safer. It releases emotions, and comes from our own feelings and imagination. See also information on helping and getting help. Add your own thoughts and feelings.

“By the light of the setting sun, we can always see the new day coming.”Justin, photographer

“Young people go through a difficult process trying to understand their lives. They need to open up about depression & suicide, but they don’t always know where or how to start talking.”

Lovelee Heller-Bottari, Community Organizer, Somerville Cares About Prevention

The exhibit will also feature The Dangers of Empathy, a performance piece

by Viesia Novosielski & June Gross.  Sunday, November 7th,  3:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Somerville Museum, One Westwood Road (at Central St.), on bus lines 83, 87, 88, 90.

“The Dangers of Empathy is emotionally very powerful because the story is moving, humorous and quintessentially human.”  –Lilian Rozin

In song, poetry, movement and drama, The Dangers of Empathy presents a daughter and a mother searching for the path to recovery while facing childhood mental illness. www.dangersofempathy.com
