Each of the following exhibits contain works by artists who have chosen artistic expression as their chosen form of healing and/or an opportunity to address issues which are often understated in our society. While some exhibit themes will give priority to survivor art, others will identify and invite specific advocate input.
El propósito de esta galería es de ofrecerles a todos la oportunidad de ver, escuchar y sentir los mensajes de otros. Todas las imagines incluidas en este sitio han sido creadas por personas que creen en el poder curativo y el empoderamiento a través del arte. Ya sea artistas sobrevivientes o personas quienes abogan a su favor, ellas y ellos están compartiendo sus historias y sanando a sus almas.

- Faces of Rape and Sexual Abuse 2002
- Reveals the inner strength of women and men who have been put to the ultimate trial of their lives. Despite being victimized, many are determined to make it through.

|Day of the Dead 2001 |
Typically, the first two days of November mark the annual Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead celebration, a ritual which dates back to pre-Colombian times when the Aztecs and Mayans took time to honor the intimate connection between life and death. This holiday represents a rich blend of Catholic and indigenous traditions and is a celebration for both the living and the dead.
