A Conversation About Art and Healing with Maggie Meiners and Renee Folzenlogen

6:00 pm

5th Annual Gaelen Family Artist Lecture

The process of creating art can be a restorative and healing experience, as it is for artist Maggie Meiners. She will reflect on her personal journey with mental health and creativity in conversation with art therapist Renee Folzenlogen. Meiners will discuss her artistic practice throughout her career, including works on view in the exhibition, Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell.

Maggie Meiners uses cultural artifacts, media and iconography to examine talk about experiences with the purpose of leveraging her personal portrayal rather than the prevailing cultural narrative. Her work is on view at MAM in the exhibition Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell.

Renee Folzenlogen, MA, LPC, ATR-BC is Art Therapist, Family Support Specialist, and Arts in Mental Health Coordinator of Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris, Inc

The Gaelen Family Artist Lecture is made possible through The Gaelen Family Artist Lecture Endowment Fund.
