Together: Hearing, Holding, Healing is an installation combining 27 paintings by Peter Bruun with an audio-collage created from voices of students attending the Waterville Alternative High School. Bruun’s assemblage of paintings serves as a metaphor for people relying on one another even in brokenness, with the accompanying audio-collage offering an arc of a story on the same theme: when things fall apart, with people helping people, it can all come back together.
This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and realized in partnership with the Colby College Museum of Art and its Lunder Institute for American Art.
Together: Hearing, Holding, Healing is sponsored by Surette Real Estate, Morning Sentinel/ Kennebec Journal, Maine General Health, the City of Waterville, and Kennebec Savings Bank.
An opening reception will be held Friday, April 5, 5–7pm.
