MPS Art Therapy Spring Exhibition 2018

WALK WITH ME
Saturday, February 10 – Saturday, March 3, 2018
Reception: Thursday, February 15, 6-8pm

School of Visual Arts and MPS Art Therapy present “Walk with Me,” curated by faculty member Liz DelliCarpini, ATR-BC, LCAT. The exhibition is on view Saturday, February 10, through Saturday, March 3, at the SVA Flatiron Gallery, 133/141 West 21st Street, New York City. Admission is free and open to the public.

The art installation Walk with Me is a collaboration between MPS art therapy students and the people that they work with at their internships sites. The artists invite family, friends, the SVA community and the general public to engage with them in restorative relational experiences. The therapeutic goals of Walk with Me are to find inspiration in our differences and to reveal the similarities between us that slip by unnoticed. The restorative practice for the community is working together to shift expected modes of social influence and contribution.

The SVA Flatiron Gallery, located at 133/141 West 21st Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, is open Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 7:00pm, and Saturday, 10:00am to 6:00pm. It is fully accessible by wheelchair.

MPS Art Therapy at SVA equips students with a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach, integrating the experiential components of art therapy within a framework of academic theory and clinical application via an internship program and art practice. Fundamental to the program is the concept that the art therapist and client work together and thus can affect each other’s growth.

School of Visual Arts has been a leader in the education of artists, designers and creative professionals for more than six decades. With a faculty of distinguished working professionals, a dynamic curriculum and an emphasis on critical thinking, SVA is a catalyst for innovation and social responsibility. Comprised of more than 6,000 students at its Manhattan campus and 35,000 alumni in 100 countries, SVA also represents one of the most influential artistic communities in the world.

5th Floor Gallery Space

Facilitated by Ayde Rayas, ATR-BC, LCAT 

  • The objective for the Collective Craftivism Workshop is primarily to give people a voice and a space for reflection. Craftivism can raise awareness of current political issues.
  • Through gathering around the theme of crafting and activism people can share stories and connect through planning collaborative artistic actions.
  • The unhurried process of embroidery and the use of colored pencils gives the participants an opportunity to meditate on their words and images with intention and mindfulness. The act of making and wearing political buttons is a way to share ones message with others.

Free and open to the public, please RSVP to [email protected] or 212.592.2610
