The opening of my show Iter Animae was well attended and received a lot of positive response. It was wonderful to see art and science coexist so naturally. There were so many interesting questions, delightful conversations and a genuine aesthetic appreciation of the work. I truly feel honored to share my work in such a wonderful environment.
More can be found about the show at the Chicago Tribune in an article found here.
My painting Jesus Carrying the Cross, pictured below, was the centerpiece of the show. I wrote a blog post explaining the meaning and my motivations. It can be found here.
The Art in the Atrium initiative is the result of a partnership between the Oak Park Art League and Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine. I would like to personally thank Julie Carpenter of the Oak Park Art League and Dr. Linda Brubaker, the dean of the Stritch School of Medicine for their enthusiasm and vision that made Iter Animae possible.
The show is up until September 23rd. It is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. The building is located just south of the hospital. The Cuneo Center houses the Stritch School of Medicine and other Health Sciences Division offices.
