Individuals may rack up 5,847 synthetic Facebook friends in our cyber culture. But as isolation escalates and meaningful relationships continue to dwindle, loneliness increases. Hospitality artist Pamela Alderman addresses these relational needs and creates a place where visitors feel personally cared for and validated. Her work invites individuals into the healing process through participatory art. As participants engage in the art making, small steps toward healing results. Over ten years of ArtPrize, Alderman’s interactive healing installations, including The Scarlet Cord and Hometown Hero, have touched thousands—one person at a time.
