Anike Robinson brings her exhibit 'Gris Gris Gurlz' to the Stone Center

Multimedia artist Anike Robinson will present "Gris Gris Gurlz" — her unique collection of collages, paintings, videos and dolls — in the Brown Gallery and Museum at the Sonya Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History this Thursday. The exhibition will run through the fall and closes on Dec. 10. “This is a place where I get to feel right, in many ways,” Robinson said. “I feel right with the universe, I feel centered and healthy and good. So when I'm joyous, or even when I'm having an anxiety and depression-filled day or month, (art) is the thing that helps me power through.”

'He brings so much joy:' Meet Oliver Huss, therapy dog-in-training

Therapy dogs are used in public spaces to relieve emotional discomfort and promote well-being, often serving alongside their humans.   Oliver is a three-year-old Bernedoodle — half-Bernese mountain dog, half-poodle — currently in his last stretch of training to become a certified therapy dog. His owner, Huss, refers to Oliver as a “chief pawsitivity officer,” spreading comfort to those around him.
