Art has the unique potential to touch deep places within the human spirit. ArtPrize artist Pamela Alderman seeks just that: “to enter into the hearts of the wounded.” Her mission that focuses on the viewers and their needs through interactive art is unique and compelling. Dozens of stories have been captured within her healing spaces as people identify their struggles and release their hurts.
Alderman’s presentation will include highlights from her eight-year ArtPrize journey—where over 100,000 people have encountered art’s healing catalyst within her work—and a short video filmed in Phoenix during the 2015 Super Bowl at her sex trafficking art installation. By creating meaningful installations about challenging issues like cancer, autism, or sex trafficking, Alderman’s art invites transformation and hope.
