December 1-23: Holidays Around the World Exhibition:
We know that art heals. The Art Center of Battle Creek wishes to send condolences to Paris and the people of France. On exhibit at the Art Center of Battle Creek during the month of December is “Holidays Around the World.” The Art Center had planned on featuring the countries of Mexico, Germany, Russia and Sweden. Linda Holderbaum, Executive Director of the Art Center, decided to add France as well. “Art heals and is also the best witness to and of trauma. In talking to the director of the Mona Bismark American Center in Paris, even our small gestures of support are greatly appreciated. It is just a little that we can do to help them begin to heal. ”
Within the area showcasing France the Art Center will have a station where visitors can write messages to the people of France on pieces of red, white and blue ribbon that will hang during the exhibit. The Art Center is also asking artists to participate. Artists may pick up small canvases (2.5 inches by 3.5 inches in size) at the Art Center to create a miniature artwork of the Eiffel Tower. The completed artworks need to be returned to the Art Center by Thursday, December 3rd and will be part of the exhibit as well. After the show ends on December 23rd the ribbons and artworks will be sent to France. Holderbaum is working with Bianca Roberts, the Executive Director of the Mona Bismark American Center which is located just a block from the Eiffel Tower on the placement of the items.
