Healing Spirits: Rx Art @ Rob Davidson Fine Arts
At left is pictured one of three "Memory Pockets", folded ceramic works by Laura Irmis. These are very accessibly priced works, considering their quality, btw.
Patient's art is also in the exhibit. Here's a section of a wall showing their work. Note the many positive self-portraits, pictures of growing, living things, vibrant colors, and the many pets lovingly rendered.
and a self-portrait...
The health care professionals also participate in the art making. I'm uncertain as to whose work this is, but it was a standout.
Some Doctors also participate in the creative healing. Here is a log/diary from Dr. Ansu Vasudevan below is a photograph of a drawing of his on the opposing page.
This creative output from so many in healthcare, getting it down on a medium, showing and telling and healing others and themselves is a moving process. Congratulations to Rx, Creative care, Benedict Haven, St. Anthony's and all the others involved in this great project, and to Rob Davidson and Rose Marie Prins for bringing it to the public.
Through March 22nd, at Rob Davidson Fine Arts, 1100 1st Ave. North.
