Becoming: An Interactive Art Experience

June 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


An Interactive Art Experience // by Julia Franklin & Mallory Abreu

Becoming: A Portable Monument of Collective Healing
Over the past few years, we’ve been caught in a relentless state of heartbreak, suffering, injustice and despair. It’s too much to carry, and yet we can’t let it consume us. We all need a way to cope so we’ve created a space where you can write about your pain and sorrow or your hopes and dreams for this world. We’ve designed an interactive experience where you can choose the ending of your words – to plant them, burn them, repair them, wash them away – to feel the lightness of letting go if only for a moment.
Artist Julia Franklin and poet Mallory Abreu invite you to make anonymous contributions and explore our exhibition space in a cargo trailer outside Mainframe Studios on Tuesday, June 21 at 5pm and outside The University Library Café on Thursday, June 23 at 5:30pm. These free events are part of ArtWeek, and everyone is welcome to participate. Please join us in this unique and uplifting community experience and be a part of creating a portable monument of collective healing. Support for part of this project is provided by the Iowa Arts Council.
