Get to Know an Arts For Life Advocate: SECCA

April 10, 2015 | By Rachel Zink

We couldn’t resonate more with the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art‘s (SECCA) mission to “bridge art, technology and engagement to enhance perspectives, inspire community and ignite new ideas.” Which is why we’re thrilled to continue our creative partnership with the Winston-Salem museum this year!

In March, we joined forces with SECCA and local artist Mary Mattingly for a Sacred Objects workshop and exhibition. Throughout the month, our families and staff gathered objects to create healing bundles that truly demonstrate the power of art. Missed the exciting exhibit? See photos of the bundles via our Facebook page.

Last summer, SECCA displayed original artwork by the creative kids at Brenner Children’s Hospital. The show, “Outside the Box,” featured larger-than-life cardboard masks and floor-to-ceiling totems. While we haven’t yet determined this year’s theme, we’re thrilled for another SECCA and Arts For Life collaboration in June. Opening night is June 25, so mark your calendars now!

And be sure to check out SECCA’s current exhibits and events. Every Thursday at 3:30 pm, they offer free art activities for the public.
