Shelter is universally identified as a basic human right, yet refuge and protection are out of reach for millions of people worldwide. How does lack of safety and security, from the physical elements as well as unseen external dangers, affect our psyche and ability to live and flourish? "Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home" provides a forum for craft artists’ responses to issues of homelessness and displacement - global and local, public and private.
This exhibition validates the human experience by showcasing art infused with personal stories and perspectives, and demonstrates that art-making is a vehicle for open communication, healing, and compassion.
