Anna Belle Kaufman is an artist who loved her career as a costume and set designer in Hollywood. Then she spent years around suffering — her own, her child’s, the families she met in the hospital - when her son was born with grave medical problems. She could no longer make art for entertainment. Instead art became a place to express and relieve her own losses and those of others. She became a family advocate, an AIDS activist, an art psychotherapist, teacher, and writer. Her son’s death was also the beginning of spiritual journey, deepened by having to create a very different life within her own chronic illness. Her art now, on exhibition in the gallery at Commonweal, is a celebration of the sacred inherent in everything.

The event is free, but your registration is appreciated.
