A traveling art exhibit created by Rev. Dr. Helen Boursier and titled “The Power of Hope — Refugee Art/Reflections” will be on display. Rev. Dr. Boursier and a dedicated group of volunteer chaplains worked with the mothers and children being held at the Karnes Family Detention Center in 2015–16 to create art as a way of exploring and expressing the trauma which they had suffered and were continuing to suffer while in detention.
