Breaking The Silence Through Clay

December 14 – 20, 2011


The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic and the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art are collaborating to raise awareness about violence against women as a critical community issue.  Together they invited a group of women who have experienced violence to participate in an expressive arts project where women create sculptures and install an art exhibit in response to the theme, “the house I live in, what I call home.”

Entitled Breaking the Silence through Clay, the exhibition tells a story, educates, and creates an experience through the experience of others. It heightens our awareness as a community of violence against women, cultivates a deeper understanding of abuse, and is a call for prevention.
