Nisswa church to host 'Lives Touched by Suicide' exhibit
Lutheran Church of the Cross, Nisswa, Art and Faith Gallery will host the exhibit "What's Left: Lives Touched by Suicide" Feb. 18-March 18 in the church's Celebration Center. It can be viewed weekdays and Sunday mornings.
This multimedia exhibit intends to create a proactive dialogue regarding suicide and mental illness with the goal of reducing the stigma surrounding them. "What's Left" provides space for participating artists and the broader community to reflect on its impact and explores the use of artistic expression in the process of grieving, healing and hope.
The display is part of a traveling exhibit that originated in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, by John Bauer, who lost his daughter to suicide in 2013. Bauer will share his personal story during the Sunday morning lifelong learning forum hour Sunday, Feb. 18, starting at 9:30 a.m. in the church's Chapel Hall. Everyone is welcome.
