An art exhibit located at the University YMCA in Champaign, is shining a light on 12 local women artists– all of whom experienced traumatic medical illnesses within their lifetime. The show is titled Scars That Bind: Resilient Women Artists and includes paintings, drawings, ceramics, poetry, and more.
CiLiving Storyteller, Erin Valle, caught up with artist and exhibit curator, Debra Bolgla, as well as the University YMCA’s Associate Director, Ann Rasmus, to chat about the ways in which these artists used their talent to document and explore their difficult circumstances.
