An exhibition project about how the opioid epidemic and hurting go together, and what we are doing to make things better. Heroin & Healing features art by seven individuals (Elisif Bruun, Peter Bruun, Phylicia Ghee, Michelle Labonte, Mark V. Lord, Anthony Ness, and Sharon Strouse) whose works touch on a spectrum of experiences and perspectives related to emotional pain and substance use: its causes and consequences. Weaving throughout is an exploration of what we might do individually and as a community to seek healing for ourselves, and help make things better for others.
