Art is often an exploration of an artist’s innermost thoughts and feelings — in turns revelatory and cathartic. But art also can serve as a refuge for others, a balm to weary souls that helps them heal.
Both aspects of art are behind the new Milwaukee theater company Jaimelyn Gray helped launch earlier this year.
“I thought about the work I was passionate about, and why I loved theater,” says Gray, a Manitowoc native. “I think good theater can be a service to society and because of that the word ‘constructive’ came to mind.”
