Art Sparks-A Community Engagement Event of Inspiration and Hope Through Art

Art Sparks–A Community Engagement Event of Inspiration and Hope through Art will open at the Freyberger Gallery on Thursday, Nov. 29, with a reception beginning at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition was initiated by Susan Rehhausser, who has conducted workshops throughout the City of Reading–named one of the most impoverished U.S. cities for its size by the U.S. Census. The mission was to create art work with a goal of inspiring an interest in the arts and lifelong learning. Pieces referred to as “art sparks” were created by assembling wooden triptychs with collages of positive images and inspirational messages, and will be distributed throughout the city this fall. The Freyberger Gallery will host a photographic exhibition of the art work created by students and citizens of Reading through December 7, 2012.

The Freyberger Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Marilyn Fox, Gallery Director, at 610-396-6140 or via e-mail at MJF14@psu.edu.
