Northrup King Building is hosting a very special event to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the devastating storm that struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2005. The worst natural disaster to ever befall the United States, the storm took the lives of 1833 people, and displaced thousands more. Many of those survivors were aided in their recovery by Minnesotans.
“Journeys” is an exhibition of art by three Mississippi Gulf Coast artists who lost their homes and studios in the storm. Assisted by the efforts of many Minnesota volunteers, the artists were able to rebuild their homes and resume their careers. The exhibition was conceived as a way of not only expressing thanks to the many volunteers who came to the aide of storm survivors, but also serves as an example of what can happen when people reach out to their fellows.A documentary that follows the artists over the past decade has also been recently produced, and will be screened during the opening reception.

*The Sexual Violence Center Mini-Gallery: Returning To The Circle *
Local artists, survivors, and SVC volunteers were asked for their creative expression of the prodigiously meaningful impact of seemingly small inner resources and action. They got inspired by honoring all it takes to make a call to a crisis line or how offering simple acts of belonging, such as deeply seeing and compassionately listening to someone, create a more peaceful world. Violence is loud and big, so it is easy to become overwhelmed; but we can return to the quiet power of what connects us.
Mini paintings are available for purchase as part of this fundraiser. The event is free and donations are welcome. The event will take place in Studio 248 on the second floor of the Northrup King Building.
Upcoming First Thursday in the Arts District dates:
