More about Sandra Eula Lee:The Walking Mountain 

Sandra Eula Lee: The Walking Mountain brings together sculptural installations that reflect the artist’s interests in labor, migration, and material histories. A Korean-American artist and daughter of immigrants, Lee’s exhibition centers on Portable Pond, a large installation referencing East Asian gardens, which traditionally provide a central reflective space to mirror back the view. Other works complement the “pond” in mixed media materials drawn from the confluence of the constructed and natural environments. In Seeds in a Wild Garden for example, Lee reflects on living and working in Seoul and Beijing, where she observed mountains of building materials accumulated as buildings were demolished. Yet occupying spaces in between were impromptu gardens created by neighborhood residents, signaling care and resilience. Click here to learn more. 

More about 50 Years of Creative Arts Therapies 

50 Years of Creative Arts Therapies – an exhibition featuring a juried selection of artworks by creative art therapists, including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and digital media– celebrates the anniversary of Drexel University’s CAT [Creative Arts Therapies] Department. The program is the world’s first graduate program in arts therapy and a leader in clinical innovation and research in art therapy, music therapy and dance/movement therapy. The department’s goals are to build a community of educators and learners, who engage in collaborative, interdisciplinary learning that advances clinical practice and knowledge in the creative arts therapies (CATs). Together, they seek to develop stewards of the CATs who will identify, protect, and evaluate relevant traditions and indigenous bodies of knowledge in order to advance the mental, physical and social health of society. Through this exhibition and community arts engagement events, the Creative Arts Therapies department seeks to democratize and increase access to creative arts experiences as a universal human right.  Live music, dance and movement arts and wellness programs will complement the visual art on view. Click here for a list of programs.
