Press Release: “Art Heals 2016” to be featured at The Studio@620 during Second Saturday ArtWalk
For Immediate Release
St. Petersburg, FL (March 25, 2016) — The Studio@620 will host “Art Heals 2016”, presented by Suncoast Center, with a public reception on Saturday April 9, 2016 from 5-9 PM, in conjunction with the Second Saturday ArtWalk.
Last year, over 1,600 children and adults in Pinellas County sought help at Suncoast Center, Inc. to begin the journey from being a victim of sexual violence to becoming a survivor. Suncoast Center presents ART HEALS, a powerful exhibit featuring artwork created by survivors of sexual violence. The event takes place during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, on ArtWalk Night, and in partnership with several local artists and arts organizations. Local artists have worked with survivors on several pieces and a few of those artists will also be exhibiting their work. The artwork provides an intimate window into the pain and healing found along these survivors’ inspirational personal journeys of recovery. The community is invited to experience this FREE exhibit and reception honoring the artists and the cause.
The Studio@620 is a non profit arts venue located at 620 1st Ave. South, St. Petersburg FL 33701
The Studio@620 has recently been designated as a trolley stop during the ArtWalk activities, sponsored by the St Petersburg Arts Alliance.
