Pearls of Wisdom: End the Violence

A Community Engagement Project

On view now through May 20, 2012


  • FREE


Pearls of Wisdom: End the Violence is a compelling installation that tackles the critical social issue of domestic violence.

For the exhibition, renowned artist Kim Abeles drew on her passion for social change and her own history as a survivor to design a transformative art-making project, working with survivors and concerned community members to recast personal memories of domestic pain into unique, iridescent objects. Like the pearls that they resemble, these deeply personal works were formed in response to a harmful irritant. Accompanying the pearls of wisdom are the potent words, advice, and images of the many hundreds of participants.

Organized by A Window Between Worlds, the only national nonprofit dedicated to using art to end domestic violence, Pearls of Wisdom celebrates the collective power of art to forge courage and build momentum to end domestic violence.
