It was a pleasure to have Pamela Alderman do two interest-raising presentations at Calvin College: one for the Calvin Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL) and the Noontime Series in which she showed highlights from her eight-year ArtPrize journey and a short video filmed in Phoenix during the 2015 Super Bowl at her sex trafficking art installation. At the CALL luncheon, she gave an overview of her ArtPrize work and created a finger-painting work of art on the spot. An appreciative audience found that Alderman's artistic vision invites transformation and inspires hope.

Pamela spoke with my university psychology majors, demonstrating such passion for the hurting and broken parts of all human beings, as embodied in her ArtPrize work, Broken Wings. Sometimes, when hurts cut deep, mere words don't suffice but colors, shapes, and artistic images provide a way to express those deepest experiences and hurts and move us a bit toward healing. Pamela powerfully uses creative ways of engaging people to focus on love, grace, kindness, and the common threads of the human experience. My college students and I were very inspired by Pamela as she lives out what it means to love, inspire, and transform pain into opportunities for growth and wellness. Pamela's creativity and social justice perspective call each and every one of us to seek and find our part in the individual and collective healing.
