It’s possible that your colleagues and students are accomplished artists in their spare time. Curious? If you work somewhere other than the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences’ Newark campus, it’s time for a road trip.
The New Jersey Medical School Fall Arts Festival features 102 artworks by 60 faculty, staff and students from RBHS and Rutgers–New Brunswick as well as some pieces created by patients.
Since 1999, the arts initiative curated by Noreen Gomez, facilities program specialist at New Jersey Medical School, has been showcasing art from university talents throughout B-level of the Medical Science Building at Rutgers Health Sciences at Newark. The results have spoken volumes about how many talented artists are camouflaged as students, health care providers, academicians and business and professional staffers. (Shown: Priyaharshany Sandanapitchai, research associate at the School of Nursing, with her watercolor “Peace from Within.”)
The exhibition is on display until January 2.
