“Broken places are my canvases. People’s stories are my pigments. People’s talents, creativity are the tools. The center of this is peace and compassion. It’s sustainable and the heart of it is the transformation of human heart.”
Painter and professor Lily Yeh’s approach to community healing takes that which is broken and creates something whole and wholly new and beautiful through public art. From Philadelphia to Rwanda, broken places are her canvases. People’s stories are the pigments. People’s talents and creativity are the tools. At the heart of her work is the transformation of human heart.
