Collaborative Environments


Through a collaborative, public art process traumatic brain injured artists of Northeast Center for Special Careís, Fine Arts Program created these hand-painted bluestones and planters. Many people, with diverse levels of functioning, painted their own rocks, contributing to a whole greater than any one part.

These art components are testaments of artistsí metamorphoses in facing the uncertainties and challenges of life. They embody the hope and joy of participants recapturing their humanity as they realize their creative potential. In keeping with the exhibitionís theme the planters, bluestone and railroad ties are recycled, green materials. This path of renewal, which leads to the Hudson River is truly alive in its exuberant celebration of the riverís Quadricentennial.
