Bridging the gap

between medicine

and the arts.

 

WHO WE ARE

Our mission is to bring deeply integrated  arts and medicine initiatives to communities for educational workshops and awareness campaigns.

We envision a world where health is treated as an equally biological and humanistic experience, and where people use art and science as a means of collaboration instead of separation.

"Life," which depicts major cells types of the human body, was completed by students from all disciplines who painted the mural at the Duke student center plaza, to be displayed in a dormitory. Students that correctly identified all the cell types were entered raffles to win posters of artwork from The Art Clinic, and the painting was used a pop-up teaching illustration for passersby and children in the community.

Using the artwork produced from our programming, we host "Empathy Galleries" to bring education about various illnesses and patient populations. Sponsoring a gallery allows organizations to receive donations from patrons visiting the gallery and brings awareness to their cause.

The Art Clinic partnered with Duke's Relay for Life and Public Health Brigades chapter to design a participatory "paint-by-number" style piece of abstract art to be auctioned to support Relay for Life and cancer research. The finished piece, shown on the right, features a bright color scheme that depicts the transition from healthy cells (in cool colors) to hyperplasic, and ultimately metastatic cancer cells (in warm colors), and was hand-painted by members of the RFL and Public Health Brigades
