Child Mind Institute: The Art of Possibility @ Journal Gallery

"Transformation really means a change in the way you see the world - and a shift in how you see yourself. It is not simply a change in the your point of view, but rather a whole different perception of what is possible. Through Creativity Workshops we use art to shift teens' awareness to encompass more possibilities." - Stephanie LaCava

"The Art of Possiblity" features twenty-five works of written art by local New York City high school students.The exhibition presents works from 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students who participated in a writing workshop with Stephanie LaCava, journalist, writer, and author of An Extraordinary Theory of Objects: A Memoir of an Outsider in Paris. Stephanie worked with students on a written piece that answered questions like, "Why do things happen to us?" or "When we're old and happy, what will we have to write about? What will inspire us then?"

Stephanie LaCava collaborated with Marc Jacobs on an accessories line inspired by her book with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Child Mind Institute. To purchase accessories and support CMI click here.
