Ripped Apart, Stitched Together in Edmonton, AB
CCJC’s Justice Story-telling Quilt, created by artist Meagan O’Shea, just finished a month long stay at The King’s University in Edmonton Alberta. The quilt was once again featured alongside a frieze by artist Gerald Vaandering. The frieze consists of a one-year collection of images of people arrested and published in the St.John’s Telegram. The two pieces were brought together to provoke thought and to challenges personal and societal perspectives of justice. The exhibit was up from March 12-April 30, 2015.
The two pieces also appeared at the 2014 National Restorative Justice Symposium in Banff. Click here to read a summary of that exhibit.
This exhibit was sponsored by The King’s University Visual Art program, The Micah Centre’s De Groot Lecture Series, The Newfoundland Arts Council, The Mennonite Central Committee Alberta Restorative Justice, Memorial University and The Church Council on Justice and Corrections.
