Art Days has filled Hiebert Lounge with artwork of all kinds (paintings, photos, poetry, sculpture, needlework, etc.) from BUMC students, faculty and staff for thirty years. This annual all-campus event is sponsored by the Provost’s office, with the exhibition mounted by the Creative Arts Society.
The recent horrific deaths of Stephon Clark, Aura Rosser, Atatiana Jefferson, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd have heightened our awareness of racism and social injustice. Furthermore, COVID-19 has exposed inequalities in our healthcare system, with meetings and presentations on both the medical campus and the Charles River Campus.
We have chosen ANTIRACISM for the theme of this year’s Art Days to promote further thought and discussion of these issues. Art Days will be in the spring semester as usual, but we are providing the theme well in advance, especially as some may have more free time now for creative endeavors. (Non-theme submissions will be acceptable, but the thematic works will be highlighted and hopefully serve as a springboard for additional presentations/discussions.)
