The Heart Lives Through the Hands

Contemporary Craft’s inaugural exhibition – The Heart Lives Through the Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks.

The Heart Lives through The Hands, is a free exhibition. Featured artist Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. This exhibition addresses relationships between people and their built environment, as well as exploring how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change. This will be Swoon’s first solo exhibition in Pittsburgh.
