“Right Next to The History”

Liz McGhee, our program manager, and a handful of our artists visited the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine yesterday afternoon, located at the University of Maine Augusta. Some pieces of Spindleworks art have been showcased in the center along with artifacts from the Holocaust and various periods of history that showcase discrimination against all types of people. As artist Theresa Labrecque told me it was, “just fascinating. And we got to see our stuff up on those walls, right next to the history.”
