Art and medicine intersect as patients, caregivers, and employees display works
For anyone who has attended a show at the Beck Center for the Arts it is always a delight to see the various art exhibits that are on display in the Collaboration Corridor in the main building. Some exhibits focus on paintings, others on multi-media; others vary in the use of various art styles and materials. No matter what exhibit is currently gracing the walls and showcases it is always fascinating to view.
The current exhibit that will run through August 22, 2014 is the Taussig Cancer Institute Art Therapy Photography Exhibition. The exhibit is free and open to the public. This collection of photographs is the work of patients, caregivers and employees of the Taussig Cancer Institute.
“I am excited to present the impactful and meaningful photography presented by our partners at Taussig Cancer Institute and the Arts and Medicine Institute at Cleveland Clinic,” said Ed Gallagher, MT-BC (Director of Education at Beck Center). Each featured photograph represents the conception of courage, hope or love as the artists cope with cancer in their lives. The artists hope that each piece will inspire the audience to celebrate the power of the creative spirit in the face of adversity. “Their work in art therapy and music therapy truly demonstrates the intersection of art and medicine.”
