Bearing Witness is a compilation of immersive and deeply moving multi-media works by Adam DelMarcelle that directly address the opioid crisis with a graphic and eye-catching approach. An artist, professor and designer, DelMarcelle focuses on using design activism to address larger societal issues, and his work has been receiving both local and national attention.
Since losing his brother to an opioid overdose, and discovering countless more families torn apart by this issue, DelMarcelle has devoted his art to bringing awareness to this epidemic that is gripping his community of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and many others nationwide. This exhibition brings together numerous mediums, including video and slide projections, audio recordings, and street art style prints, that inspire personal reflection and advocate the need for public dialog and action.
Organized in conjunction with Ursinus College’s Museum Studies class, Bearing Witness is co-curated by five students—Tiffini Eckenrod, Abigail Krasutsky, Greta Lagerberg, Alfredo Negron Paradis, Max Stout—and their instructor, Gloria Mast.
All Berman exhibitions are free and open to the public.
