Art created through trauma can have healing effects not just on the artist, but the viewer as well. Every April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, local nonprofit Finding Our Voices presents an art show of work by its members. The group offers art workshops that promote safe self-expression year-round, to ensure survivors feel supported as they work toward recovery. Today, at the official opening reception of Art as Transformation, meet some of the artists who have taken to creation to overcome their pain, and view the honest and heartfelt expression of trauma on the path to healing.
