FRIEDA group art exhibition November 18 – January 30
FRIEDA’s third group art show, green, was originally scheduled in 2020 to herald the coming of spring. We don’t need to explain why it is only now becoming a reality.  In fact, right now feels like a perfect time to present this verdant visual refuge to the public. We invite you to discover a diverse group of seven emerging, accomplished artists as they explore various representations of nature.

Community art installation
In March 2020, the FRIEDA community began a collaborative art project that created by hand 20,000 blue butterflies, enough to form a protective canopy over the building entrance and a flickering overhead lattice for the interior space. More than 60 community members contributed to this project that uses rare blue butterflies as symbols of transformation, renewal, freedom, and luck to capture the essence of FRIEDA.
