Poignant concerning shared trauma and loss confronted over the past year, this panel offers a platform in which to discuss developments in the medical/therapy field and the opportunities of interdisciplinary work between the field of health care, museums, and artists envisioning the future of our well-being and recovery, as well as processing personal loss and trauma through art and performance. Contemplative and impactful interactions with art, both via temporary exhibitions and museum collections, and the opportunities of interdisciplinary work between museum educators and medical school partners envisioning meaningful collaborations will be explored. In particular, Clinician’s Eye, a joint venture of the University of Virginia School of Medicine’s Center for Health Humanities and Ethics and UVA’s Fralin Museum of Art, will be presented. Clinician’s Eye is an interactive workshop using visual art analysis to improve core clinical skills of observation, communication, collaboration, compassion, and reflection.
This program and its specific teaching methodologies, workshop content, and additional tangential programs such as HeArt of Medicine relate significantly to the themes of the exhibitions on view in the ZMA in numerous and profound ways, especially the consideration of the museum/art as a facilitator.
