Gowns with a Message

Catharsis: An Exploration of Art, Disease and Healing will be on the 2nd floor landing of the Health Sciences Learning Center, just outside Ebling Library, starting Thursday, April 23rd.

In this evocative exhibit, Textile & Apparel Design student, Erin Aubrey, shares five gowns; one for each person her childhood community lost to cancer & a final dress for the incredible people who supported their loved-ones through the unrelenting trial of disease.

Erin’s collection is dedicated to exploring the effects of cancer on patients and their care givers, to aid in her own healing and to invite others to relate and contemplate their own experiences with disease.

Please come meet and talk to Erin from 4:00-6:00 on Thursday, April 23rd, near the exhibit. Health sciences students are strongly encouraged to attend this thoughtful, integrative display. The exhibit runs through May 7th.
