The purpose of the exhibit is to raise awareness about human trafficking and to value survivors’ voices. Artists have been asked to create their interpretation of one of 13 survivor stories from the website www.thelifestory.org
Although this is a small exhibit, it will feature a wide array of artistic media, from watercolors to dance, photography, metal sculpture, spoken word, and fiber art. The artists have agreed to tackle a tough subject during human trafficking awareness month in order to shed some light on a subject that is too often kept in the dark. The content of this exhibit may be triggering for survivors. Visitor discretion is advised.
“Rewritten Presents: The Life Story” will be on display in the Atrium Gallery of the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center from Saturday, January 14 through Sunday, January 29. The Gmeiner is open from 12-6PM Tuesdays through Sundays and is located at 134 Main Street in Wellsboro behind the Green Free Library. Admission to the gallery is free.
