Join with us to give voice to a survivor’s story through your creative expression in our 5th Annual Art Above Violence Show
We will be working as soon as we hear from you to pair you with a survivor!
We need all types of artists: visual arts, dance, poetry, song/composition. Anyone that would like to participate can bring their unique genre and style to touch our community.
The last few years some of the pieces that brought in the highest bids were smaller pieces, 3-D art such as sculpture and screen printed boxes.
We are looking for any type of creative expression! It can be:
wearable (jewelry, shirts, hats ect…),
functional (trinket boxes, instruments ect..),
or more traditional wall art (canvas, photography, collage ect…)
In our 5th year we are hoping to bring the last 4 years of exceptional performance and art into a space again to show our community that Together We Rise up from the ashes that family violence creates. We want the message to touch those who come to the show, to impact their lives to know that they are part of the solution to interpersonal violence in our community.
Call or email for more information on how to participate: Ashley Wilson 970-403-2558 firstname.lastname@example.org

2019 art - 2020 Bidding will open in September
In order to honor every survivor and their story, give them safe and confidential ways to share and to make this project meaningful to them and their healing.
Survivors are given the option to more fully share their stories: THAT is what you will see here!
Not every survivor is ready to share this openly and we honor their need and process to heal on their own terms, for those that asked to share, here are their stories
Rise Up To End Violence In Our Community
A Big Thank You to all of our local 2018 artists who donated their time for this project and the survivors willing to share their stories.
