Collaborative Artwork Installed at Drueding Center

On November 15th, artist D’vorah Horn of Mending Spirit, Art for Healing presented a collaborative art piece for installation inside Drueding Center’s Residential Building.

Horn’s traveling art gallery, Healing Window Paintings, was displayed at Drueding Center earlier in the year for three months. Horn’s organization, Mending Spirit, Art for Healing, offered several art workshops for Drueding Center residents throughout the spring and summer. In one workshop, Horn worked with residents to develop a collaborative art piece to go on permanent display within Drueding Center.

Nyefha, a young mother of two, was an active participant in the project. She had the honor of naming the collaborative artwork, Life In It. The artwork features bright colors, birds, frogs, a peacock and more. To hear about Nyefha’s experience, check out the video from Mending Spirit.

Life In It gave residents the opportunity to leave their legacy behind for future residents of Drueding to come.
