Artists have long used their work as a means of healing by generating beauty in otherwise overwhelming or frightening contexts. Hemispheric Conversations Urban Art Project connects urban artists, researchers, and storytellers to tell stories about healing and connection through public art conversations and making. This two-year project connects researchers, storytellers, and muralists to mobilize public art for shared connection. It has the potential to be continued at a regional scale. Outcomes: 1) visual stories about how communities in Pittsburgh address crisis and heal; 2) three murals reflecting on these narratives; 3) a gallery show and catalogue with photographs of the storytelling and mural process and selections from resident narratives.
