Is a UK Employee the Next Van Gogh?

Published: Mar 5, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 5, 2014) -- The UK HealthCare's Arts in HealthCare Program is asking employees to submit their art to be considered for inclusion in an upcoming exhibit called The Healing Presence of Art.

 

"We know that art enhances the healing environment," says UKHC Arts in Healthcare staffer Jason Akhtarekhavari  "This seemed like a good way to encourage employees to think about and experience the healing power of art while celebrating the many talents of our faculty and staff." 
 
All University of Kentucky faculty and staff may submit up to three pieces of two-dimensional art in any medium by April 1. The art should be no larger than 20x30 inches and ready to frame. Art may be either horizontal or vertical.
 
The art will be reviewed by an independent juror and selected artists will be notified by April 15. The art will be framed and exhibited in two new employee art galleries -- one in Pavilion H of UK Chandler Hospital, and the other at UK Good Samaritan Hospital.
 
After the exhibition, each piece will be moved to a clinical location with employee recognition as part of the UK Arts in HealthCare permanent collection.  
 

A submission form should accompany all entries and is available at  http://www.ukhealthcare.uky.edu/arts/home/

 
For more information, contact Jason Akhtarekhavari at 859-323-9896 or jason.star@uky.edu.
