Art of Survival

This 32-page, full-color publication reflects on relevance of art and aesthetic experience to life of women and its impact on the betterment of the human spirit. It focuses on the transformational and empowering impact of the creative process through the works of women artists and women who are survivors of abuse.

We dedicate this book to all women. We hope that it will compel you to discover the empowering role of art in your life. Enjoy the readings, women's voices, and their art works.
