This exhibition features artworks from Feel the Heal and exhibits many different artistic interpretations of human
resiliency including illness, loss, and grief. The Feel the Heal Initiative is based on the belief that art has the power
to heal, inspire, provoke, and challenge. This initiative raises awareness about how art is a catalyst for positive
change and enhances the well-being of individuals, society, and the environment through artists’ creativity. This
exhibition gives participating artists an opportunity to share their journey with all those that visit the Vero Beach
Museum of Art. Come and Feel the Heal!
