Hope & Healing: The Art of Asylum at the Monastery

Más Información

This is an exhibition of original watercolors and other artworks by kids whose families have fled to the U.S. seeking asylum on display at the Tucson City Council Ward 6 office. These works are from Casa Alitas, now operating a refugee shelter in the former Benedictine Monastery, which offers art-making classes to traumatized kids. Artist Valarie James, who has shown her immigration-based artwork internationally, runs a regular clase de arte at the Monastery. Now she and Antonia Gallegos have curated an exhibition of the children's works, which range from bright pictures of the flowers and casas of their homelands to more somber images of border enforcement. The show opens Friday night, July 12, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m . The gallery is open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Free.
