VISUAL HISTORY COLLABORATIVE

 

Visual History Collaborative works with organizations, communities, families, and individuals to create custom art pieces and installations through stories and artifacts, memories, and mementos.

 

Using a participatory and inclusive process, VHC invites contributors and community members to build history together. Commissioned to commemorate a milestone, project, event, or as a unique and distinctive way to acknowledge donors for a special campaign, the finished pieces are woven together to illustrate a unique shared history. VHC's art weaves cultures and communities together; it reflects history and illustrates a story. It honors, acknowledges, challenges, and communicates.

 

Founders of the VHC, artists Leah Sobsey and Lynn Bregman Blass, have put a 21st century spin on the ancient medium of encaustic—blending reproduced photographs and other images within it to create an unprecedented way of remembering. Encaustic, through its translucency, shows how a captured moment can inform the present—and preserve memories for

the future.

 

Commissions include the Rose Community Foundation, Denver, Colorado; Habitat for Humanity Durham, North Carolina; the town of Chapel Hill & Carrboro, North Carolina; The Durham Art Guild 25th Anniversary Celebration, Durham, North Carolina; as well as numerous families, private collections, and corporations.
