A selection of MCADians are showing work in Mending, a mobile art exhibit and conversation of a world in crisis, which will be on view in the ArtReach St. Croix Mobile Art Gallery this summer.

The exhibit, curated by faculty member William G. Franklin, features a selection of damaged objects from local and regional artists that will serve as a catalyst for a conversation on personal histories, human fragility, anxiety and hopes for the future.

“One could say that the works in this exhibit have been rescued by the artists from an otherwise abandoned existence and granted a new timely mission, to facilitate a needed reflection on our human condition, vulnerabilities, and hopes in this time of crisis,” says Franklin. “Bringing together histories from a diverse group of participants, the exhibit aims at conjuring a unique total experience for the visitors. ArtReach’s mobile gallery is literally the vehicle to make this possibility a reality.”
