Into Light: Erasing the Stigma of the Disease of Drug Addiction
October 7 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until November 12, 2021
Theresa Clower’s son Devin died in 2018 and returning to her artistic roots helped her begin to grieve the loss of her son. Since then, she founded Into Light, a powerful art project consisting of graphite portraits and narratives intended to honor the lives of those who have died from drugs and create a forum for sharing stories, providing support, and offering education and activities that address the drug epidemic. The opportunity to host Into Light is offered to a university museum or art gallery in each state, and the Daura Museum is honored to be chosen. At the close of the exhibition, the portraits will be presented to the family at a “gifting gathering.”
- This event is free and open to the public.
