Resiliency

September 30-December 01

re·sil·ience

  • the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
  • the ability to spring back into shape; elasticity.

Resiliency is an exhibition featuring contemporary art from across the nation that explores, celebrates and practices resiliency. This exhibition was inspired through dialogue between Krasl Art Center and Spectrum Health Lakeland (SHL). In 2016, the latter completed a Community Health Needs Assessment in which mental health emerged as the most urgent need throughout Berrien County. The same year, KAC committed to inspiring meaningful change and strengthening the community through visual arts as its new mission. Combining KAC’s expertise in art, and SHL’s expertise in wellness, Resiliency is a collaborative effort to improve individual lives and community in our area.  Using the visual arts as a platform, this exhibition provides applicable tools for guests to craft their own resilient practices and gain empathy for others.
