Through the I of the Storm: Witness Rebirth and Rebuilding
MAY–JUNE 2006Mixed Greens, Adia Millett, and the Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) present Through the I of the Storm: Witness Rebirth and Rebuilding. During this special exhibition, Adia will debut her new sculptures and photographs. In conjunction, a series of drawings made by the children of Khao Lak, a small community in Thailand that was devastated by the recent tsunami, will be projected in the north gallery.
After visiting the recovering communities, Adia drew upon her experiences to create this new body of work, which includes a miniature temple and six wooden huts on stilts. Each is a deeply personal evaluation of loss, life, love, power, and chance.
During this exhibition, donations and a portion of all sales will benefit CMA and WEAVE, a grassroots organization in Thailand working with US-based Global Goods Partners. Donations can also be mailed directly to the attention of Helene Miller, Children’s Museum of the Arts, 185 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10013, or call 212 274 0986.
