Art meets medicine in Dublin campus exhibit

One of the pieces featured in the SNAG exhibit.

In what organizers hope will be the start of an ongoing tradition, the Heritage College, Dublin, campus hosted an art exhibit in April that was a collaboration between the medical school campus and OHIO's College of Fine Arts. The exhibit included works in a variety of media, with themes ranging from psychological to environmental, medical to social. The artworks were created by students of the OHIO School of Art + Design, in a class taught by John Sabraw, M.F.A., professor of art and chair of painting and drawing.
