FLOWER THERAPY is an immersive live flower art exhibition and fundraiser for Norwest Community Collaborative’s COVID-19 Gardening Through Grief Project.
The exhibition opened this weekend at the Norwest Gallery of Art on July 17th.
The gardening through grief project was inspired by gallery founder Asia Hamilton’s mother, and project partner Kayana Sessoms’s father— both of whom died from COVID-19.
“Detroit has suffered so much loss from gun violence to this terrible pandemic that we felt the need for a space of healing and understanding,” Hamilton said in a statement. “Flowers helped us through our grief and this Flower Therapy exhibition is just that, THERAPY. An opportunity for encouragement to all who attend.”
