Miami Emerging Arts Leaders: Arts in Health and Wellness

Miami Emerging Arts Leaders: Arts in Health and Wellness

More and more, the health industry is integrating the arts, including performing and visual arts and design, into a wide variety of healthcare and community settings for therapeutic, educational, and expressive purposes. Join the Miami Emerging Arts Leaders and field experts for a panel discussion exploring the arts and health landscape and how organizations like Jackson Health and Baptist Health South Florida are incorporating the arts in both their therapeutic and medical practices as well as their state-of-the-art facilities.  

The session will also highlight an artwork that is part of the Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places collection. Located at the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center at Jackson, The Cat is a playful interactive sculpture by Swiss artist Olaf Breuning. It features specially designed components that assist with fine and gross motor skills therapy to help people recovering from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, and other complex conditions.

All are welcome and the session will be followed by a Q&A.

Moderated by:
Ashlee Thomas – Deputy Director, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs

Brenda J.Cain – Vice-President / CEO, Christine E.Lynn Rehabilitation Center for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth / Jackson Memorial
Ana Padron Martin – Arts in Medicine Specialist, Miami Cancer Institute, Baptist Health
Dana Pezoldt – Cultural Projects Administrator, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs
