Call for submissions for the Health Sciences Art Show in March

art show The Humanism and the Arts in Medicine group at The Ohio State University College of Medicine promotes creative programs and celebration of human expression to students, residents, faculty, staff and alumni of the seven health science colleges.

The 2024 Health Sciences Art Show will be held in Meiling Hall from March 6 to March 8 and includes an opening reception on March 6 at 4 p.m. The call for submissions provides the chance to share creative expression with colleagues. Submissions are accepted until Feb. 14.

According to Mike Horgan, Humanism and the Arts in Medicine program manager at the Ohio State College of Medicine, there will be an online gallery of the pieces, along with submitted pieces of spoken word, music, audio and video.

“Ribbons will be awarded and a limited selection of pieces will be eligible for an extended exhibition at The James Art Gallery,” Horgan says.

Last year, a painting created by a family of three was chosen for an award by Carol R. Bradford, MD, MS, FACS, dean of the College of Medicine. Craig and Mallory Allen, who work in The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Department of Supply Chain Management, along with their son Everett, created a deep bond painting together.

Craig says the effort started with his desire to get his son interested in art.

“I started setting up large canvases for us to work on together,” he says. “The freedom of laying down paint with a brush helped us create a piece of art that started to take shape.”

See the collection on the 2023 online gallery to examine the creativity and artistic talents of your colleagues. Please consider submitting an application for the 2024 art show.
