TRAVELING GALLERY TOUR

Public Exhibits featuring GGaV Art Reproductions
June 2022-Present

Purpose of the Tour

Until now, our events have been exclusively for grieving families and invited guests. This public exhibition seeks to further the organization’s mission to revolutionize grief culture from its tradition of silence and solitude to one of voice and community. The artwork invites attendees to bear witness to the grief of others in order to confront their own. When we make public what was once private, we boldly set out on a path of possible healing.

The stigma, loneliness, and shame related to the unexpected death of a child impedes our culture’s ability to grieve with families affected by this tragedy. What does child loss feel like one week, one year, or one decade later? What do bereaved parents really need from the people who love and support them? Can art heal some of their pain? This show seeks to open these questions and change the conversation around grief to help better support the grieving people in our own lives.

We are grateful to Northwest Mothers Milk Bank for the opportunity to share our work in their space. Several of the pieces selected to hang here were chosen because the mothers donated their milk.
