About

This winter, local artist Zaiga Minka Thorson will create a site-specific installation in the Figge’s 1st floor gallery comprised of a suspended boat sculpture, and 16 new paintings. In her exhibition, Thorson will explore concepts of trauma and loss, while emphasizing art's ability to heal and renew. Components of the installation will be created in collaboration with local community groups who will be invited to tell their own stories of loss, gratitude, and acceptance through the creation of sculptural elements which will be suspended throughout the gallery. Visitors will also be invited to tell their story by writing on pieces of cloth and adding them to the boat in the center of the exhibition.
