Art of Hope – Trinity Church

Oct 2013

Art of Hope Day 2
Art of Hope
October 25, 10 am – October 27, 4:30 pm
Copley Square

How do we respond peacefully to violence in our lives? In our communities? Do we passively accept it? Do we fuel the cycle with our own anger?

Artists Derek “Focus” Smith from the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota, and Aaron “AMP” Pearcy of Rapid City, SD, have been actively exploring the question of how to make and use art to respond peacefully to violence.

Trinity Church is honored to host them when, over a weekend, these artists will create a temporary mural as a statement of peace, hope and love over violence, despair and hatred. They will be creating live, on Copley Square, all three days. Stop by each day to see the work evolve!
