Hi Family!
The year has started off a little slower than in the past as I continue to transition into my new job and develop balance. And while I am sad to no longer be with the Milwaukee Art Museum, I am elated that I still get to work with such an awesome team in this new capacity.  As for the art... I am giving something new a try. Stay tuned or peek behind the scenes via social media @lacicoppins!

Thanks for keeping up with the Latest! --
Laci!
The right of women to be free from violence has drawn increasing concern and support since the 1970s. This distinct installation on Identity through Memory, completed with three separate series (No Longer Silent, I Stand Triumph, and Free from Control), calls attention to domestic violence, rape, sexual battery and the results leading to physical injury, psychological trauma, sometimes death and sometimes triumph. My current series focuses on Identity Through Memory.
The consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime. The memories of rape and sexual assault can be paralyzing and generate a cavernous wound of silence. This installation serves as a catalyst for my current community experience as a selected artist by Milwaukee Public Schools, funded through Arts @Large.
Over the course of the last few months I have shared my process with 9th grade students and assisted in guiding them in their own artistic responses.
Above all else we created work together!
Consider joining us for the exhibition closing at Bay View High School Friday, April 15th from 4:30-6:30pm, in conjunction with Gallery Night! Come see not only my series Identity Through Memory, but the completed hands-on-project students developed in response to the same subject areas! Be sure and follow me on Twitter and Periscope @lacicoppins to keep up with the night.

What's Ahead? Stay connected and look for the latest here!
