Breaths of Fresh Air

We have something special for your summer muse. Contributors to our past three issues of Ebling’s online art journal, Corpus Callosum, gathered remotely in May to talk about their work, their inspiration, and their reasons for creating art in its many forms.

Here is the link for the recording of Breaths of Fresh Air: Corpus Callosum Artists Talk About their Work. Honestly, we were blown away…

These artists, also health sciences researchers, administrators, instructors and practitioners, shared an inspirational array of insights and sentiments regarding their paintings, poems, music, 3-D work and photographs.

From a way to manage grief, to a graphic process of handling the imposter syndrome, to navigating the stress and constant decision making in a COVID informed environment, the shared stories and anecdotes resonated for us and promise to give you boatloads of food for thought.

Heartfelt thank yous to the artists…Jennifer Bird, Holly Cohn, Kristin Cooper, M. Christina Eddington, Johnson Hoang, Jenn Johnson, Noel Kroeplin, Cuong Luu, Christina Mark, Michelle Masson, Ryan McAdams, Ariel Niforatos, Elizabeth Petty, Fatima Sancheznieto, Christina Thomas-Virnig, and Amanda R. Young. In your busy schedules, the greatest art was the time you made to be with us.

Many people wore multiple hats to either plan or facilitate this endeavor. Thank you to Lia Vellardita, Corpus’s Managing Editor and Ebling’s Director, Christopher Hooper-Lane, the School of Nursing’s Lisa Bratske, the School of Medicine & Public Health’s Elizabeth Petty, Ebling’s IT guru, Allan Barclay, and Corpus’s Review Board for an exemplary get-together.

Yours, Micaela Sullivan-Fowler at Ebling Library.
