WE WILL heal
through the arts
Together We Will Heal is a non-profit cultural arts project intended to stimulate and elevate the narrative regarding the importance of kindness, compassion and perseverance through the exhibition of hand painted portraits and stories of inspiring men and women including those who have served all of us on the front lines in the ongoing battle against the pandemic.
And although each word of our project’s title is important -- Together | We | Will | Heal – the word “TOGETHER” conveys a uniquely powerful sense of community that, sadly, seems to be in short supply.
As we believe that art has a unique ability to convey complex feelings and emotions often beyond the capacity of words, Together We Will Heal has created two exhibits designed to help bring people closer to one another through shared, common values.
And while the pandemic is the unfortunate common experience that inspired the creation of our project, there are other problems in America that can be bridged using the same word and conveying similar stories and images of hope, perseverance, inspiration and unity from people across America. Anything is possible, if we do it TOGETHER.
Our TOGETHER arts project has attracted the participation of people from all walks of life and accumulated unique, personal and deeply moving stories from across America, with more coming in each day.
To display these inspiring images and stories we have developed two exhibits that are, in themselves, pieces of cultural art. Each of these two exhibits displays 12 images of inspiring Americans (each with a QR code that allows viewers to see the individual’s backstory) featuring the letters TOGETHER.

To bring the messages of unity and inspiration to as many people as possible in a safe and meaningful way, we are scheduling of tour of our TOGETHER exhibits beginning in July, 2021 that will continue through June, 2022 at airports, stadiums, hospitals and select public venues across the United States.
