The Arts in Health Internship Exhibition will be held April 1-18 in the Hamline University Drew Fine Arts Lobby.

Works of art in the exhibition include drawings, paintings, and collages. All of the works are created by students from the Hamline's new arts in health course and internship and reflect their experiences at Children's Hospital and Shriners Hospitals for Children. The art from this exhibit explores various disciplines such as aesthetics, neuroscience, public health, and the connection of brain networks to the arts.

The arts in health course and internship was made possible by the Hamline University Department of Studio Arts and Art History in collaboration with the Public Health Sciences Program. The arts in health course brings together studio arts, art history, and public health sciences students to explore real world applications of arts in the health field and the relationship of creativity to health. As part of the arts in health Internship, supervised by Nicola Demonte, each intern is required to display selected works that help them gain valuable, practical experience in the process of designing, preparing, and installing the exhibit.
