Thanks to everyone who joined the opening for the exhibition Words & Afterwards! And also to those who sent us well wishes in your absence.

Check out the night’s celebration from Flickr albums with the Peace Education Center, photos by co-chair Tom Rico; and with Dey of the Phoenix, photos by Tom Schouten who also programmed my multimedia installation Eyes Wide Open. A special thanks to the jam band Headz for performing all night!

The exhibition stands through June 24, so we continue to spread the word about this fantastic community-arts collaboration! (SCENE) Metrospace‘s gallery hours are Thursdays 2:00pm to 5:00pm; Fridays and Saturdays 2:00pm to 6:00pm; and Sundays 12:00pm to 4:00pm. (SCENE) puts on wonderful programs as well, mostly evenings, which gives another opportunity to take in the exhibit.

Groups interested in visits outside of gallery hours may contact myself by email at MelissaHasbrook[at] or phone (517) 897-5833. Schools, organizations, worship communities, and others are welcome to inquire! Hopefully, the art work inspires guests to explore collage and the theme of moving from violence to healing when they return to daily life.
