Art is powerful. It can nourish the mind, body and spirit, and it can support healing. That is the inspiration behind a bimonthly Art of Healing exhibit offered by the Penny George™ Institute for Health and Healing.
The Penny George Institute will open another exhibit at its new Penny George Institute for Health and Healing – WestHealth clinic in Plymouth, Minn., in August. The paintings of Nicky Torkzadeh will be on display there.
In addition, the following exhibits are at the Abbott Northwestern Hospital campus through the end of September 2014:
- The botanical illustrations of Susan Strong are on display at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing Outpatient Clinic. Strong creates finely detailed representations of our natural world. These images allow the viewer to meditate on the amazing simple yet complex architecture of nature.
- The prints of Miriam Rudolph are on exhibit in the lower level of the Wasie Building outside of the LiveWell® Fitness Center. Rudolph’s prints are visual diaries that narrate her experiences and perceptions of place. She explores concepts of home and belonging, farewell and new beginnings, and holding on and letting go. She has shown her work world-wide at places ranging from the Global Print 2013 in Portugal to the International Print Center New York to the Highpoint Center for Printmaking – Minneapolis.
The displays are part of the Penny George Institute’s Art of Healing Program, which provides arts-based wellness intervention and education, and supports a healing environment. For more information, call 612-863-9028.
