Between Now and Forever

About the Exhibit

Between Now and Forever offers a unique and quietly powerful approach to loss and grief. Made up of three parts, it includes an extraordinary beautiful exhibit on loss, grief and healing (the stories, poems, photographs, artwork and music of 20 bereaved people), a documentary video for parents who have lost a child, and an important experiential component: a place for those who visit the exhibit to share their own stories of loss with others and an opportunity to participate in some very special grief workshops.

We wish to offer Between Now and Forever as our gift of hope and comfort to the many, many people whose lives were forever changed by the attacks on New York and Washington and to people everywhere who suffer from loss, from sadness and from grief. It is our hope also to make Between Now and Forever a place of peace and comfort and a place where those who are grieving, may be in the company of others who have traveled this road before.

Between Now and Forever had its opening May 16, 2002 at The Good Grief Center in the historic Carnegie Library of Homestead, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is now traveling around the U.S. and Canada to hospices, grief centers churches, libraries, universities, hospitals. We have created this very extensive project without the benefit of grants. If you would like to contribute, you may due so in memory or in honor of a friend or family member and this will be acknowledged in a list of memorials that will always travel with the exhibit.

"If ever there was an exhibit that should be seen across this country, Between Now and Forever is it!"

Bereavement Support Munhall, Pennsylvania
