Hamline University's Wesley Center for
Spirituality, Service and Social Justice has partnered with Homewood Studios and
Imagine No Malaria, a national network of United Methodist churches and
colleges, to work towards eliminating malaria in Africa by 2015. It is our hope
that this show will help accomplish that goal by raising awareness, money, and
education about those in malaria-stricken locations.
Whether through art
or literature, each contributer will bring his or her own vision of what it
means to imagine no malaria. The show features work from undergraduate students
majoring in studio art and creative writing, graduate students enrolled in the
Creative Writing Programs, and pieces by established Hamline alumni and
community partners. It will be curated by local artist/author, Daniel Campbell, an alum of Hamline University.
Sometimes gritty and realistic, sometimes light and joyous, each piece
carries with it the hope for a world without malaria. Be sure to come to the
show, invite your family, and spread the word! This is a great, innovative way
to show more innovative ways the United Methodist Church is helping children in
Africa.ADDRESS & GALLERY HOURS
