Art and Healing Exhibition Reception

September 11 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Join us for a celebration of this important exhibition. We will view the works in the show and have an opportunity to hear from the juror about her selection process and from the artists about their works. Register to attend online HERE.

Theme
We invited artists to explore the theme of Art and Healing, not only as it relates to the Covid-19 pandemic and the profound impact it has had on our lives, but also to reflect on past life experiences or feelings relating to healing from any condition or challenge.  As we slowly emerge from the quarantines of the past few months, WWAC seeks to create an exhibition that looks at art as a healing tool, reflecting the realities, feelings, or experiences during this surreal time, or from other past events, either personal or public.

Juror
Lisa Freeman gravitated to the healthcare arena from an early age, having more than 25 years of diversified experience in both profit and non-profit medical business sectors in the tri-state area. For the last 5 years, Freeman has assisted her husband Richard S. Freeman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital- Hamilton by creating several programs and initiatives with focus on the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey- Hamilton Campus and the unique Holistic Medicine Program offered within. Mrs. Freeman invests a great deal of time building relationships and developing her knowledge of the surrounding communities. Freeman is a member of the RWJUH – Auxiliary, holds a seat on the RWJUH- Foundation Board, Co-Creator of the RWJUH- Hamilton “Friends” Program, Co-Creator of the RWJUH- Hamilton “Holistic Medicine Program featured in the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Hamilton Campus as well as the Co-Creator of the trademarked RWJUH- Hamilton, “We vs. C (Cancer)” Initiative which has raised several hundred thousand dollars since 2017 to make improvements to the center and more recently to fund the Holistic Medicine Program. Currently a New Hope, PA resident, Mrs. Freeman believes that art, nature, music and giving back to your community heals the soul. She spends most of her time developing the Holistic Program by engaging with local artists, performers, community and spiritual leaders to curate the most diverse and healing line of services to offer to patients and their family members while treating at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Hamilton Campus.
