From September 23rd – September 30th we are hosting an art installation created by Wilson College Art Professor, Adam DelMarcelle. The art installation is entitled “Epidemic”and focuses on harm reduction, recovery, and advocacy. It highlights the opioid epidemic / overdose epidemic through fusing art with harm reduction education. The installation will be in the CUB Raider Lounge 5.
Adam’s brother, Charlie DelMarcelle, is a professional actor, playwright, and faculty member at West Chester University. He has created a powerful one-person play entitled “The Shadow That Broke the Light”, which has been performed at a variety of locations throughout the United States. Charlie will be performing the play at the Luhrs Performing Arts Center in three separate performances; one on the evening of September 22nd and two on the afternoon and evening of September 23rd.
