Understanding Grief

The Mourners: Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgandy is a touring exhibit that will open at the Dallas Art Museum in October. The mourners remind us that greiving is a collective experience, common to all people, and all moments in history. The Library has two books that offer new ways to understand grief.

That exhibition does sound good, kind of bringing humans together with their collective grief. Although I am curious as to how the exhibition will be presented as humanity coming together in times of grief, or just a showcase of human misery. D:
