Artist Tiffany Jones, funded in part by a 2015 Maryland State Arts Council Mini Grant, leads an art/healing project inviting community members to create Safe Love “shawls” dedicated to their own recovery or to loved ones affected by mental illness or addiction. Using materials provided, or fabrics and materials participants bring with them, participants will work on creating a Safe Love artwork (a kind of "prayer shawl") under the guidance of lead facilitators. All are encouraged to add words of comfort, love, and support, which then become physically part their Safe Love pieces: sewing, stitching, writing, participants working in pairs make prayer shawl-like pieces, embellished with meaningful words and imagery. The shawls will be shared immediately afterward during the opening reception for What Love Looks Like. No art experience is required to take part in the Safe Love activity; email info@newdaycampaign.com to sign up.

Every now and again, an artist deeply touches you... the experience transcending mere interest, pleasure, or delight. Such has been our experience of @phyliciaghee , whose performances mine a deeply spiritual place of profound connection to something so much larger than our every day... to a place of wholeness, presence, and healing. Our #ndcartistoftheweek is Phylicia Ghee, who has been a fixture as an artist for the New Day Campaign since we began in 2015. Our Resident Healing Artist in 2015, Phylicia has presented several extraordinarily powerful performances over the past several years, and will be a part of our activities again in 2018 in a yet-to-be-determined healing arts workshop as part of our programming for “Heroin & Healing,” an exhibition we are presenting with @kentcountyarts . You can see more of Phylicia at her website at https://phyliciaghee.carbonmade.com. #artheals #healingandart #itsanewday #ndcitsanewday
