Inner Space:Art of Trauma & Healing

$3,817 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 19 months

My name is Jeralyn Mohr, I am a multi-media artist and sexual assault and rape survivor.  I will be showing a body of artwork on June 23-25  at Block Studios  in St Paul, MN called Inner Space which uses outer space as a visual metaphor for the vast inner space sexual trauma occupies.
19935002_1493186465.9857_funddescription.jpg  This multi-media art show is intended to raise awareness of sexual violence and its long term effects, break the shame of silence, examine the painful work required to allow for resilience and raise funds for sexual violence non-profits including much needed legal support. Over the last few years, a few key non-profits helped me in my process in going public with my story, report my abuser to the police and get the support I needed in this long difficult journey towards healing. It's extremely important that the artwork resulting from this process be seen and for these over-worked resources to gain as much momentum as possible to continue a new cycle of healing for others as well. I learned the hard way how stretched and scarce legal help is out there. That was truly shocking, and that simply cannot continue to be the case!
19935002_1493186378.1249_funddescription.jpg  Funds raised will be used for printing, marketing and logistical expenses for the show on June 23-25, 2017 and donations to CVIC , Gender Justice Non-profit Law firm and 360 Communities and towards the Break the Silence Memorial .
June is the goal for the art exhibit, but ideally this work will exhibit again and continue to raise awareness and create a sense of community through creative expression, compassion and  trauma-informed emotional and legal support.

I just wanted to send a quick note that a mini-version of this show will be exhibiting at the beautiful Workhorse Coffee House off 280 and University Ave in St. Paul and the opening reception is on Feb 18 (Sunday) ...I'll be there most of the day answering questions and I'll do my best to either bring prints or take orders since there is new work if you missed out last time!
Thank you and hope to see you!

Break the Silence day was Aug 16th and the memorial is still in process, my exhibit has passed but there's still an unreached goal I've set that can help make the country's first survival memorial a reality on Boom Island...feel free to share with friends and family!
... and again thank you to all that have given so far, this is making a difference!
