The Grunigen Medical Library Plexus Art Exhibit

ImagePromoting compassion and creativity in medical education, and improving patient care through the arts and humanities, the Grunigen Medical Library (GML) proudly hosted the Plexus Exhibit from February 1st to April 30th.

Many thanks to the generous financial support of the UCI Medical Humanities Initiative, directed by Doug Haynes, Professor in the Department of History and Vice Provost for Academic Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (Drs. Aaron Kheriaty and Johanna Shapiro are co-directors of the Initiative). The opening of the Plexus art exhibit was held at GML on February 2, 2017. A number of faculty, staff and students were there to celebrate with us.

Plexus is a student-organized publication that showcases artwork created by students, physicians, faculty, staff and patients of the UCI School of Medicine. The goal of Plexus is to build community within the school and to enhance healing. It aspires to connect those who seek to heal and those who seek to be healed through the unifying language of art. In addition to the PLEXUS journal, they annually publish Project Hx (inspired by the Humans of New York project) and maintain a blog.
