Marshfield Clinic Health System Employee Exhibit
Dates: April 26 - June 19, 2015
A new exhibition at New Visions Gallery will celebrate the creative side of Marshfield Clinic Health System Employees. The Marshfield Clinic Health System Employee Exhibit will be on display from April 26 – June 19, 2015.
New Visions Gallery will revive a past tradition of showcasing the talented employee artists working within the Marshfield Clinic Health System. Many people working within the various facets of the medical field (physicians, medical transcriptionists, appointment coordinators, food service aides, etc.) engage in the creation of art. Studies have shown that employees (across fields) that create art and/or participate in creative activities have lower levels of stress, are more productive, have better morale, have a better appreciation of diversity and are more open to dialogue. This is an opportunity to share this creative talent, to honor the often times hidden talents of those working within the Marshfield Clinic Health System and to acknowledge the role of creativity across the professional spectrum.
The Marshfield Clinic Health System Employee Exhibit will feature works of art by 47 artists from many different MCHS departments (Pediatrics, Division of Education, Information Systems, etc.) from different Marshfield Clinic locations, including Marshfield Center, Weston and Minocqua, and working in various media, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, photography, glass, mixed media, photography, jewelry, fiber and more.
“As a plastic surgeon, one always attempts to be creative and tries to balance beauty with function. Though we take pictures all the time in our line of work, photography as a hobby stemmed after I joined the Marshfield Clinic 3 years ago,” states artist and plastic surgeon Dr. Dipan Has, “Here I met people of different specialties, backgrounds and views with similar interests in art and photography which nudged me into seriously thinking about my photography. The best advice I’ve gotten from one of my colleagues – “Shoot in RAW”.”
School and community group tours are available for this exhibit, made possible in part through a generous grant from the Marshfield Area Community Foundation. Interested parties should contact New Visions Gallery to schedule a date and time.
The Marshfield Clinic Health System Employee Exhibit will be on display from April 26 – June 19, 2015. It can be viewed Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM at New Visions Gallery, located in the main lobby of Marshfield Clinic, 1000 North Oak Avenue, Marshfield. Admission is free thanks in part to donations from ART PARTNERS. Exhibit space and other support is donated by Marshfield Clinic.
