Tikkun Olam - Repairing the World
Conceived and assembled by artist Christy Honigman, and executed by some 54 participants from 27 countries, the project endeavors both tangibly and metaphorically to represent the universal nature of Tikkun Olam, and the inherent connection between art, healing, and transformation. Many of the participants are survivors of torture and exile. The participants offer pictures, poems, songs and personal prose to represent their interpretations of Tikkun Olam.

Prijedor - Lives From the Bosnian Genocide
The Health Sciences Library hosted an exhibit in the 3rd floor Gallery. The art exhibit depicted the genocide that transpired in the town of Prijedor and nearby concentration camps. Through documentary artifacts, photographs, and first-person survivor accounts, the exhibition presented a compelling chronicle of human tragedy.
The University of Colorado Office of the President, the Office of Diversity and CU Anschutz Student Senate as well as many other sponsors made contributions to assist in bringing this exhibit to the Health Sciences Library.
