MOORHEAD - Two exhibits showcasing how art heals the soul bill be shown at the Hjemkomst Center through March 26.

"Exploring NOW: 365 Days to 50" and "The sheARTS Project: Art Hats for Breast Cancer Awareness" were both created by local artist and designer Claudia M. Pratt, who has faced breast cancer for the past five years.

To celebrate her 50th year, Pratt decided to document a year of living in the moment, featuring an art exhibit, daily blog and photo inspiration postings, as well as raising more than $25,000 for the Art Heals Fund, which supports art therapy projects in Cass and Clay Counties.

This is the first time all the hats for the sheARTS project will be shown alongside photographs by Meg Luther Lindholm, local documentary photographer and freelance radio producer for Prairie Public Broadcasting.
