Event description

Description

Detroit Center for Design + Technology and curatorial partner, Embrace Creatives presents, Lawrence Technological University student, Jo Caputo's personal journey through hell and back.

Upon the Artist's 9,095th day of life, he will have become older than his older brother. 9095 Days is a photographic representation of pivotal people, places and moments in Artist Jo Caputo’s life following the loss of his brother to the opioid epidemic. It ultimately seeks to further the dialogue for those left in the destructive wake of this epidemic and to help one another navigate through the healing process. Please join us for this important and introspective exhibit and be open to discussing the impact this devastating addiction is having on our country.

This is art as a catalyst to recovery.

Caputo’s series strives to leave viewers with a feeling of solace, knowing that no one is entirely alone in experiencing a loss of this magnitude. As the annual opioid death toll continues to rise, the artist and viewers are forced to make sense of what remains and how to proceed. Caputo, a student at Lawrence Technological University, seeks to celebrate all those who have helped him on this journey, those who are gone and those who are still here.
