"Re-Reading Disaster: Artist’s Books by Maureen Cummins."

When: Through May 23

For the past two decades, Maureen Cummins has been making artist’s books, prints, and installations that investigate the nature and experience of disasters. In 1999, haunted by the 1982 death-by-suicide of her mother, Cummins turned to art as a way to provide context for, and understanding of, the disaster within her own family. The response from viewers was so powerful that what she considered to be a brief artistic tangent turned into her life’s work.
