FSU Art MFA Students Show in the Perspectives-Art, Liver Diseases and Me Event in Vienna, Austria.

Published April 6, 2015

Perspectives-Art, Liver Diseases and Me is an initiative developed by Catedra Arte (Y) Enfermedades at the Universidad de Valencia Bellas Artes in Valencia, Spain. It was created to raise awareness and enhance the understanding of various diseases such as Hepatitis C.

Three MFA students in FSU’s Department of Art working on the Hepatits C initiative with Professor Terri Lindbloom were Scott Bell, Gaelin Craighead and Elise Thompson. They each created an art work based on their interview with an individual who had or has Hepatitis C. And, they each received 1,000 Euros.

 

These works will be exhibited during a conference on Hepatitis C in Vienna Austria, April 2015.
This is just one part of the whole initiative. To find out more information please visit these sites:
