FIX: HEARTBREAK AND HOPE INSIDE OUR OPIOID CRISIS

STATE OF NATURE: PICTURING INDIANA BIODIVERSITY

Open through Aug. 1, 2021

Open Feb. 13 through Sept 19, 2021

The United States is in the middle of a crisis that is destroying families and communities. A perfect storm of prescription drugs, powerful illegal narcotics, the science of brain chemistry and socio-economic pressures, among other factors, has fueled a spike in opioid abuse at all levels of society. Indiana is no exception.

Experience the astonishing beauty and discover the importance of Indiana’s biological diversity through pieces from the natural world and artworks created by artists with Indiana connections. Explore how forests and ecological diversity in Indiana defined the lives of Hoosiers over the years, then consider how urbanization and climate change has impacted Indiana’s biological system and our everyday lives.

In this exhibit you'll discover personal stories of recovery, explore the science behind opioid addiction, and learn how to affect positive change in this crisis.

The exhibit was developed in collaboration with the Grunwald Gallery of Art, Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, Indiana University, Bloomington.

We invite teachers to visit this exhibit so you can share the information and resources with your students. As a reminder, all accredited K-12 educators receive free admission with their valid teacher ID. Supported by

POWER OF WORDS AND REDUCING STIGMA The words we use have power. They can lift and encourage or break someone down. Reflecting on the words we use to describe people and situations, how can we shift what we say? How can we reduce stigma when we change our word choice? Explore words, their power, and your ability to reduce stigma in your own community. WHAT GOOD IS PAIN? Why do we feel pain? What would happen if we couldn’t feel pain? Explore how pain is used to help us and how it is processed in our body. We’ll also investigate what happens when pain relievers are introduced, and the way pain has been managed throughout history. BE AN AGENT OF CHANGE - HOW TO HELP YOURSELF AND OTHERS How does our brain process stress and emotion? Finding healthy ways to handle stress is important. Explore a few ways that can be helpful in identifying personal stressors and healthy methods to handle it. Music, art, writing, exercise, and even sharing and actively listening are just a few ways that you can help yourself and others.

BRAIN CHEMISTRY How do neurons communicate and what happens when a message doesn’t get through? Explore this process through hands-on activities that will get your students thinking, talking and moving. SOCIAL JUSTICE How do race, gender, and social class play a role in the opioid crisis? We’ll explore how they can impact access to healthcare, how doctors perceive the patient and their health issues, the ability to receive treatment as well as the quality of treatment, and finally legal ramifications.
