The Art of Survival Exhibit and Reception

October 9, 2018 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Through the Art of Survival program, led by Marta Levy, CHS Director of Children’s Program and Creative Arts Therapist, Bergen County survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault create visual art. At CHS' community center, a weekly women’s support group helps local survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault express the trauma of abuse in a safe and supportive environment, through experimenting with art materials, sharing, and processing. Levy forged a partnership with The Art School at Old Church so that the art created through this program could be shown to the public.


“The Art of Survival allows survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault to discover their inner creative selves while learning new skills, communicating and interacting with other survivors in a group, and offering and receiving support.” Marta Levy explains.


The Art of Survival program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Bergen County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.



Galleries are open Monday through Friday 9:15 AM–5:30 PM and 7:00 PM–10:00 PM and 10:00 AM–3:00 PM on Saturdays. The exhibit and the opening reception are both free and open to the public.


If you or someone you know is being abused call our 24 hour hotline.
