Join us for the opening reception for Patrisha McLean’s Finding Our Voices exhibit! 

There will be an opening reception for the exhibit on Thursday, July 14 at the Hutchinson Center from 5-7 p.m., with light refreshments. The community event, open to the public, will be an opportunity to connect with domestic abuse survivors, including some of the 43 sister-survivors of the Finding Our Voices project.

The exhibit, on display July 7 through October 28, is free and open to the public from 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday–Friday. 

The show features framed color photographs by Patrisha McLean. McLean, a survivor of domestic abuse, is also the founder and president of Finding Our Voices. Documentation of the abuse the women in the show experienced, including customized power and control wheels, will be shown alongside their portraits. The exhibit is sponsored by Camden National Bank.

The survivors featured in this exhibit range in age from 18–82 and include an incarcerated woman, doctors, nurses, business owners and Gov. Janet Mills, illustrating that domestic abuse can happen to anyone and is everywhere.

For information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Abby Spooner, or 207.338.8000.
