Please join the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library in welcoming the Artist In Residence (AIR) & Photovoice Exhibition to the main level of the library. Throughout the month of May, Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) patients, caregivers, and staff will exhibit artworks and photos created in the Artist in Residence program and the Photovoice with Adult Cancer Survivors study.
The exhibit will be on display at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, from May 1 – 31. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, May 6 from 5:30-7:30PM.
Artist in Residence is a program offered through HCI’s Linda B. and Robert B. Wiggins Wellness and Integrative Health Center and funded by LiveStrong and the Creative Center. The program features a local artist teaching workshops at HCI to patients, their families, and staff. Art projects run the gamut from paintings to ceramics to jewelry.
The Photovoice study, a collaboration between HCI Patient and Family Support and the University of Utah College of Social Work, explores how cancer can affect identity and personal development. In this study, cancer survivors use photography to share stories with peers who have had similar experiences.
Learn more about the experiences of Jaehee Yi, PhD, HCI investigator and principal investigator of the Photovoice study, program participant Teri Kaplan, and Colour Maisch, the current Artist in Residence on HCI’s Circle of Hope blog.
This collection will be on display on the main level of the library from May 1st through the 31st.
Come and admire this incredible artwork!
