Current exhibit is Robert Sirko: "Me, Myself, and Eyes" Recent Paintings & Drawings
We welcome back the artist Robert Sirko for a second time, featuring new works created during the past two years. Sirko has been working almost frenetically and passionately, exploring several different directions as he states is due to in large part his struggle with cancer and the dwindling sands of time. With a level of desperation and the uncertainty that comes with living with an incurable disease, the artist has been searching for a purposeful direction, perhaps a final episode to a life committed to art, and one that investigates areas never attempted yet always aspired to. Hence, the work presented in this current show will offer the viewer a glimpse into a variety of expressions uncommon to most solo exhibits. Sirko jokingly referred to this show as a “one person group exhibit”.

Brain Injury Support Group at The Nest during the winter months- Every third Wednesday of the month: March 18th, April 15th, May 20th
Welcome! This is a support group for individuals who are living with brain
injuries and their caregivers; in collaboration with the Brain Injury
Association of Indiana. Acquired brain injuries, including Traumatic Brain
Injuries (TBI), can be from (but not limited to): car accidents, sport injuries,
assaults, falls, and combat.
Brain injury affects different people in different degrees, but those who are living with a brain injury often experience similar emotions and frequently feel isolated and alone in working through them. Dealing with a brain injury or TBI can be challenging for both the patient and his or her family, but sharing your experiences with people who have had similar experiences can help. This group is co-facilitated by Stacey Garcelon and Kristy Putnam; both survivors of TBI themselves and trained facilitators.
Our Shared Goals so far are to:
- Provide support
- Share Resources
- Further understand the resiliency of the Brain
- Promote Self-Care, Self- Acceptance
- Share experience
We meet Monthly on the third Wednesday of each month. Approximately every other month we will have a guest speaker. We ask that you please RSVP in advance so we have enough materials, and are able to notify you if anything changes.
Text or call with any questions: 219-207-7222 Please call and let us know you're coming so that we can be sure you are notified if there are any changes..

March 14th- Open the Vault- In the Second Layer Storytelling Workshop
The second layer of story is given to us in our childhood by our
family/community/era. As small children we have little agency in our story
creation, yet our experiences at this stage in our life have significant impact
on our adult waking internal narratives. During this Workshop we will open the
vault on our second layer to understand the stories carved there as we
progressed toward adulthood. All of the Five Layers of Story are covered in
every MyPath Workshop. Students are encouraged to work on any layer that suits
them at the Workshop.
Enter Liminal Space with MyPath at The Nest in Michigan City - Saturday March 14, 2010
Liminal space is a passageway we pass through and emerge from and it also describes the creative process when an artist begins work on a new piece of art... be it a painting, a sculpture or a poem. The artist begins, not sure of what the final output will be, yet proceeding with a vision, hope and confidence that the piece will be finished.... and shared with the world.
MyPath Bibliotherapy Storytelling Workshops encourage and create liminal space in the creative process of restructuring your stories into a piece of performance art. Through this process you become aware of The Five Layers of Story in a safe and supportive environment while you take ownership of your story. MyPath Bibliotherapy Storytelling Workshops transform your perspective of stories that you have held frozen and unchanging since the event occurred in your past.
