THE POWER OF GOODNESS EXHIBITION OPENS AT ALFRED UNIVERSITY MostArts FESTIVAL

Alfred, NY (June 29, 2015) - The Power of Goodness is a curated exhibition of children’s artwork illustrating short stories of nonviolence and reconciliation from Chechnya, Russia and around the world. These works capture the excitement of action, the joy of seeing from new perspectives and the encouragement of witnessing small acts that make big differences.

The curators, Nadine Hoover and Dawn Bennett, collaborated on this exquisite display of children's art forged from the heightened experiences of children surviving war and the remarkable skill of young people who pour hours into creating art when war shuts down their schools.

An English-language short story book, a trilingual textbook with discussion questions, workshops on nonviolence and reconciliation and a training manual accompany this exhibition.

Nadine Hoover, Director of Conscience Studio and Coordinator of Friends Peace Teams in Asia West Pacific, identified an ecology of practices that create public cultures of peace that she offers through books, exhibitions and activities. Dawn Bennett, Owner of the Rogue Carrot and Freelance Curator, brings 15 years of curatorial experience in Chicago and Baltimore to producing exhibitions from paintings by monkeys to ceramics by Ruth Duckworth.

Artworks, from five of the 23 stories in the exhibition, are on display at the Powell Center at Alfred University in Alfred, NY. The exhibition will open at 1:00 pm on Monday, July 6, 2015. It will run through August 7, 2015.
