Cambridge College hosts Violence Transformed for 4th year

Violence Transformed Art Exhibit 2018
"Terminal Velocity" by Josephine Turalba is one of the artistic works from the Violence Transformed Art Exhibition.

Since late February, Cambridge College has been hosting a program called Violence Transformed. It is comprised of three different events, all held at our Boston campus and open to the public:

  1. An Art Exhibit that will run through Saturday, March 24. See our online calendar for details.
  2. "Voices from the Field" Presentations that took place on March 14. Cambridge College faculty and expert guests explored  the impact of guns and gun violence in the lives of communities and individuals. View presentation materials
  3. A Closing Reception and Performances will be held on March 23. This event will give attendees an opportunity to learn more about the inspiration behind the work from the artists and the important efforts of Violence Transformed! Download flyer or see online calendar for more information.

Gun violence touches on issues central to American life: safety, equality, opportunity, and community. It takes thousands of lives, depresses the quality of life of whole neighborhoods, and it reflects America’s existing racial and economic disparities.

The work of participating artists imagine alternatives to violence and give expression to themes of protest, refuge, survival, healing and commemoration.  This exhibition underscores Cambridge College’s commitment to promote awareness and to address the issue of violence, in the communities we serve and live in.
