2022 | Art & Healing: Overview

About the Art & Healing Collaboration

Beginning in Spring 2021, The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU began a collaboration with Pullman Regional Hospital, using virtual exhibitions, current exhibitions, and resources from our permanent collection to engage with the Pullman community in a conversation about relationships among art, health, and healing.

Broadly organized under the theme “Art & Healing,” the exhibitions and programs to be included in this collaboration are chosen and planned with the wider Pullman community as well as Pullman Regional Hospital staff and patients in mind. Our Art & Healing Virtual Exhibitions page introduces the beginning of remote programming which took place during Pullman Regional Hospital’s Health Innovation Summit, via the hospital’s Center For Learning & Innovation.

As we explore this new collaboration, our offerings will strive to address the following questions about engaging in art and making art:

  1. How does art keep us healthy?
  2. How does art help with therapeutic and healing processes?
  3. How is art related to mindfulness and meditation?
  4. How does art inspire and inform those who are ill, injured, or otherwise in need of healing?
  5. How does art inspire and inform medical professionals and caregivers?

See our Art & Healing Virtual Exhibitions page for art and exhibitions addressing these questions.

2022 Art & Healing Events

Funding for these programs has been provided by Pullman Regional Hospital’s Center for Learning & Innovation.
The programs offered by the WSU Schnitzer Museum for the summer of 2022 are listed below:

Art & Healing Wellness Classes with Ambiente432
Join us this June and July for wellness classes with the interactive sound sculpture Ambiente432 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. Each session features a different teacher and wellness practice—including meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and dance—and will encourage interaction with Ambiente432. Created by the artist and composer Trimpin, the sculpture is comprised of 12 motion-responsive resonator horns suspended from the ceiling and organized in strategic configurations, tuned precisely to 432Hz. Known as Verdi’s ‘A’, this vibration frequency recurs in the tuning of ancient Tibetan singing bowls and Stradivarius instruments, and is thought by many to be a healing frequency.

Classes are by-donation and all proceeds will go to the newly-formed Unity of Ukraine nonprofit group to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. WSU students and Unity of Ukraine founders will be present to say a few words about the healing efforts needed for Ukraine at the start of each session.

Sessions are drop-in and open to the public. No advance registration required.
