Call for Art - Mind, Body, and World

Health results from many factors – the biological processes of our bodies, our emotional states, and the social contexts in which we live. Rochester is the birthplace of the biopsychosocial model, a model that considers how all these factors interact to influence health and illness. In honor of our department's 75th anniversary, we invite artists to share artwork that reflects the experience of health and illness as the interaction of biological, psychological, and social influences.  Please complete the online art submission form below:

The Bridge Art Gallery aims to provide a space for local artists to display their artwork, while at the same time creating a comforting and therapeutic environment for patients, families, and employees. Our hope is to diminish the stigma and hesitance associated with entering our part of the Medical Center. The gallery holds three shows a year.
