WHAT
BELONGING Exhibition

Write a letter about “belonging”. The letter will be exhibited in the BELONGING Exhibition. You do not have to be an artist or even a great writer, however, that’s ok too. You may have noticed that I am not the best of writers but I put myself out there anyhow.

The BELONGING project exhibition will begin on May 2, 2018.

About the Author Ruth Chase

My work documents the human spirit and the powerful insights that allow people to find a sense of belonging within their community. The public plays a vital role in the outcome of my work, taking a journey with me that can last up to two years. I produce multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. Self-aware subjects with strong belief systems fascinate me and draw me in.
