Celebrating Our Community Partners: A Retrospective Exhibition Series

Click our logo above to help support this virtual series

Violence Transformed is excited to announce our virtual series of retrospective exhibits! As we prepare to emerge safely and soundly from an unprecedented COVID-lockdown and to begin planning for live exhibits to resume sometime in 2023, Violence Transformed is launching this virtual series of exhibits designed to celebrate our fifteen-year history and honor the organizations and venues with which we have partnered over the years. The series will also recognize the socially-engaged artists, curators and activists who have contributed to our work thus far, and who will continue to be with us as the world reopens!

Remembering Pamela Green

Celebrating Our Community Partners: A Retrospective Exhibition Series is dedicated to honor and remember Pam Green who worked with Violence Transformed since its inception in 2007. For many years, she served with Marshall Hughes as the co-host of VT exhibits and events at Roxbury Community College’s Resnikoff Theater & Gallery. She also co-curated and photographed a number of community-based exhibits at other VT venues. Pam was a phenomenal and loving woman who is deeply missed!

Lead Curator

Hope Ricciardi serves as Lead Curator of Celebrating Our Community Partners: A Retrospective Exhibition Series and is working with our partnering venues, our co-curators, webmaster and social media experts to make these exhibits available to the widest possible audience in the coming weeks and months. While our retrospective exhibits are intended to honor the past, Violence Transformed is also working behind the scenes with various partners and curators, both new and longstanding - in and beyond Boston - to prepare a new schedule of live exhibits going forward.
