Artist—Art and Illness Series

Sometimes art communicates feelings and experiences far more effectively than words alone. This exhibition series aims to provide a space for intimate engagement with art that reflects lived experiences by featuring artists who explore health and wellness through visual media. Works of art in this program function as social objects, encouraging conversation and understanding.

Each year, one exhibition will open in conjunction with the Carver College of Medicine Examined Life Conferences to add a unique, art-driven perspective for patients, families, and the healthcare community.
