"Art is Healing" new community outreach for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center

This inaugural exhibit in this new community outreach art program is "Through the Eyes of a Chaplain," showcases mixed media by Kathleen Jacobson, as associate chaplain at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.

From the brochure accompanying this exhibit, the artist shares her inspiration:
My paintings are based on interactions I had with patients in 2010 through 2011. They are intriguing stories that weave together patients' medical conditions and spirituality. The narratives range from spiritual awakenings to end-of-life and near-death visions. I purposely left the door open for interpretation by each viewer--so did not include the stories with the paintings. Every person sees life through the filter of his or her own unique life skills.
The exhibit will be on display in the north hallway of the medical center from December 2011-February 2012. An artist's reception will be held on December 8, from 5-8 pm, in conjunction with Cheyenne's monthly art walk, Art Design and Dine.
