October 28th - Art With Heart & Hope
Art With Heart & Hope
A Storytelling Exhibition On Coping With Illness And Disability
October 28th, Saratoga Springs
Featuring "Ink" by Jud
In 2019, BMB launched this pop-up show to share the work of artists living with, and caring for those living with, illnesses and disabilities. Now an annual event and exhibition, Art with Heart & Hope celebrates those who channel complex feelings into expressive creations.
Art with Heart & Hope combines the healing power of art with the equally powerful component of storytelling. Works are displayed alongside written statements from the artists, who share the ways art helps them move beyond their personal battles with illness or disability.
