University of Toledo Health will celebrate the creativity of students, faculty and staff by displaying nearly 30 artists’ work at a favorite event.
The 2015 Health Science Campus Artist Showcase will run from Monday, Jan. 26, through Monday, March 16, on the fourth floor of Mulford Library.
The 10th annual showcase will feature artistic works in a variety of 2- and 3-dimensional media from students, faculty and staff affiliated with the health sciences on both Health Science and Main campuses.
“This is a chance for individuals who are typically only associated with science to be seen for their creative side,” Jodi Jameson, instructor in the College of Nursing, librarian at Mulford Library, and member of the artist showcase committee, said. “The showcase is a way of displaying their artwork and highlighting their talents.”
In conjunction with the free, public exhibit, an artists’ reception will take place Friday, Feb. 6, from 4 to 6 p.m., and include a lecture titled “Eye Disease of Famous Artists.” Light refreshments will be served at the event.
Dr. James Ravin, a clinical associate professor in the UT College of Medicine and Life Sciences, will lead the lecture in the iCare University Room in the basement of Mulford Library.
Signed copies of his book, The Artist’s Eyes, which explores the relationship between vision, eye disease and art history, will be raffled at the reception.
Visitors can view the artwork during regular library hours: Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to midnight; Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to midnight.
