The July 28th closing reception for Hope And Fear: Using Art Therapy to Cope in Times of Transition, the collaborative exhibit between ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery and Art Therapy Buffalo, was once again packed with enthusiastic participants. Inside, people contributed their hopes and fears to the interactive sculpture, while outside, participants were guided through an exercise about tolerance. People of all ages enjoyed the event. Photos from the evening are below.
If you never got a chance to see the exhibit while it was still up at ¡Buen Vivir!, or you just want to see it again, the entire exhibit is now available online.
