Human Impact: Stories of the Opioid Epidemic

Exhibition dates: September 28, 2019 - August 16, 2020

In the past decade, the opioid epidemic has swept across the United States, laying waste to inner cities, suburbs, and small towns. It is now the deadliest drug crisis in American history, with overdose fatalities the leading cause of death for adults under the age of fifty. New England is particularly hard hit, and efforts to raise awareness of both the problem and the interventions that can prevent overdoses from becoming fatal are especially important in this region. Artistic expression has long been an effective vehicle to explore critical societal issues and engage communities. Human Impact: Stories of the Opioid Epidemic, an exhibition at Fuller Craft Museum, aims to broaden awareness of the opioid epidemic and its ruinous effect, while offering messages of hope, resiliency, and recovery.

Human Impact: Stories of the Opioid Epidemic brings together eleven artists working in craft-based media to explore the consequences of the opioid crisis through the lens of those who have been deeply impacted. To inform the creative process, the invited artists participated in substance use training by High Point Treatment Center, and then met with affected families for intimate conversations about their experiences with opiates. These informative actions were designed to inspire the commissioned works exhibited at Fuller Craft.

Fuller Craft joins with several organizations for Human Impact: Stories of the Opioid Epidemic, including the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, Brockton Hospital, High Point Treatment Center, and Stonehill College.
