Embryo VII, Opening Reception
March 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The exhibition chronicles lessons learned and personal evolution of its creator. Dionna bravely exposes her battle with borderline personality disorder, suicide, major depression, trichotillomania and “schizo fits” in an effort to confront and prevail against its systemic and societal influence on her life. Embryo VII is now sponsored in-part by the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disabilities Services (DBHIDS) of Philadelphia, PA. Product sponsorhip is provided by The Home Depot of Downingtown, PA. Partial proceeds will benefit the ARTbuds youth visual arts program at the Urban Art Gallery 501(c)(3) of West Philadelphia.
