KUCD participate in Hope & Healing Art Show
Twenty-two KU students created original artwork around the message of hope and healing to be donated to local hospitals and healthcare facilities, and two students won awards. Their art is currently on display at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA. Graduate and undergraduate students donated their artwork to the nonprofit Healing Through The Arts (htta.org), which provides healthcare facilities original and beautiful art. Their mission is to provide free art to inspire hope and calm.
“The more students that participate, the more art we have to share with hospitals and help those who need healing, and there is such high demand for this inspiring artwork,” says Heather Rodale, founder of Healing Through The Arts.
Assistant professor, Dannell MacIlwraith of the Communication Design department encouraged her students to submit art. She is extremely proud of her students for creating original artwork that will inspire art therapy for the community.
The art will be on display from February 23 – April 14, 2019, at the Banana Factory Crayola Gallery; 25 W Third Street, Bethlehem, PA 18015 **Check gallery hours https://www.bananafactory.org/visit/hours/
