community outreach Healing Place

Healing Place

As an extension of the Artspace Community Outreach Program, Artspace will be partnering with the Healing Place of Wake County in the spring of 2006. Artspace sculptor, Paris Alexander worked with a group of 60 men from the Healing Place to create a site-specific sculptural installation. The men was instructed in the carving of thirty limestone relief sculptures, which was assembled into a sculptural installation on the grounds of the women's facility of The Healing Place. The participants developed an overall theme reflecting the mission of the program and worked on relief sculptures exploring their own struggles and recoveries.
