2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Elizabeth will work with grieving communities to create a series of illuminated gardens that will be installed throughout the city. The project will address mental health issues by acknowledging grief as an emotional, physical, cognitive, and social disability that can be isolating and confusing for the mourners, their loved ones, and the larger community. The gardens, both in their creation and public display, will advocate for emotional and physical space for grief while raising awareness for the lack of support systems in economically challenged communities. Elizabeth hopes to offer comfort and shine a light on the need for grief awareness in communities that are too-often under resourced.
