Aurora, IL. August 21, 2018—Mutual Ground, Inc.'s “Survivors’ Art Show” will be at Mixology Salon on August 24th, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.   This inspirational and educational event is open to the public free of charge.  The show will exhibit art created by Mutual Ground’s clients and art contributed by community artists interested in supporting Mutual Ground and raising awareness around sexual assault/abuse issues.  

The art show focuses on a theme designed to speak to a survivor’s experience. The artists displayed in this show were asked to use a medium of their choice to visually capture the complex process of healing. Artists were encouraged to try and illustrate the wide range of emotions related to a survivor’s healing journey. 

“We hope that displaying this art at Mixology will bring awareness to the fact that Mutual Ground is here to help any man, woman or child in the Tri-Cities area and beyond that has been affected by sexual violence.  We are here to support these individuals on their road to healing and want them to know that they are not alone,” said Michelle Meyer, Executive Director of Mutual Ground.  

The art exhibit will also include a silent art auction and raffle with all proceeds directly benefiting Mutual Ground.
