What's the power of art? In this video from NebraskaArtists.org, Omaha glass artist Therman Statom thinks art can literally heal people ... and he says he has proof.. Here’s the link — http://www.nebraskaartists.org/movies/video12_2_4_b_Statom.html
NebraskaArtists.org is a free website dedicated to providing Nebraska art teachers with powerful video tools tied directly to the Nebraska Visual Arts Educational Standards. The project is administered by the Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA), in partnership with the Nebraska Art Teachers Association (NATA), Joslyn Art Museum, Sheldon Museum of Art, and the Nebraska Department of Education. Videos are produced by the Ganzel Group Communications and Flicka Films both of Lincoln.
In our first episode, Forces of Nature, writer Dawn Dorland, interdisciplinary artist RobMacInnis, and composer Tom Dempster all share work utilizing nature as metaphor and myth. In our second episode, Distance and Identity, composer Fjola Evans and photographer Elise Kirktalk about the great influence the places they grew up -- Iceland and the American Midwest -- have on their work, even though they have both long since moved away.
Stay tuned in July for our third episode, where we examine ways strangers intersect with very personal parts of our lives, featuring poet Erin Malone and artist Sophie Barbasch.
