Hope & Creativity in the Time of COVID | Triangle Book Arts with Arts & Health at Duke Exhibit
How important is it for artists to reflect the times that they are in while connecting with as many people as possible through the work they create and showcase? Betty Haskin and Melinda Rittenhouse help answer that very question as they team up to install an exhibition of work from Triangle Book Arts (TBA), a collective of artists based across the Triangle of North Carolina. These intrepid women, book artists themselves, worked to curate several displays throughout Duke University Hospital, in collaborated with Arts & Health at Duke, as a way of giving hope to patients facing difficult procedures there and the healthcare staff that support them.
Co-produced by the Publishing Humanities Initiative and the Health Humanities Lab at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI). Directed by FHI Multimedia Director Eric Barstow.
