See “A Peace of My Mind” exhibit at Hennepin Gallery through May 27
The goal of the new exhibit now at the Hennepin Gallery is to get people to talk. “A Peace of My Mind” is a multimedia art project to get the public talking about issues related to conflict resolution, civic responsibility and peace.
More than 50 people describe what peace means to them, how they work toward it in their lives, and the obstacles they encounter along the way. The exhibit strives to highlight commonalities in the human race. Those profiled include Holocaust survivors and a homeless man, a Somali refugee and a military chaplain, a pottery instructor and an oil company executive. Artists, volunteers, politicians and business leaders all share their thoughts and inspiring stories in a series that celebrates our common experience and sense of community.
A presentation to launch the exhibit will be held at noon Wednesday, May 6, at the Hennepin County Government Center on the skyway level. Photographer and “A Peace of My Mind” creator John Noltner will speak. There will also be music by the City-County Chorus.
The Hennepin Gallery is free and open to the public 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Hennepin County Government Center, A-level, 300. S. Sixth St.
