UVA Virtual Exhibition Now Live!

Unbound Visual Arts Exhibition Wellness: 
Art for Physical and Emotional Healing

Date: View "live" on Monday, May 4, 2020 through June 30, 2020
Description: Unbound Visual Arts (UVA), a UNESCO/UNITWIN Affiliate, is creating a series of 3-dimensional exhibits using a virtual gallery. The first one will be the very timely “Wellness: Art for Physical and Emotional Healing” which premiered at Lasell University’s Wedeman Gallery in October 2018. Cosponsors included the UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Gender, Culture & Development at Boston University's WGS (Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program) and the Gender & International Development Initiatives of the Brandeis Women's Studies Research Center (GaIDI/WSRC). This Exhibition, curated by UVA Executive Director John Quatrale, features 13 artists (12 women!) and 29 works of art. The artists in the Exhibit showcase different understandings of health and wellness -- the wellness of a person, an animal, and even nature itself, and the interaction and relationship among all three. The artwork further demonstrates how art can help us both understand and represent the concept of wellness.
