In conjunction with the exhibition Learned Objects, Rochele Royster presents her work Dolls4Peace included in the exhibition, in which she invited children, teachers, and community members across Chicago to create handmade dolls as a means for addressing trauma and gun violence. Royster has worked for the last 20 years integrating art therapy into the educational setting and has worked with youth, adolescents, and young adults with various learning differences. Royster will be in conversation with Jim Duignan, artist and founder of Stockyard Institute. Royster’s Dolls 4 Peace was included in Stockyard Institute’s exhibition PUBLIC SCHOOL at the Hyde Park Art Center in 2017.
