Noon to 4 p.m. - Hand Art Center Exhibit - Cultural Credit

Hand Art Center

The Waiting Room: Lost and Found visually expresses the experience of illness - breast cancer, dementia, anorexia, depression, domestic abuse - and through hands-on activity stations constitutes therapeutic creativity for patient and artists. The Waiting Room explores the psychologically rich conceptual framework of the medical waiting room. This is the place where patients are processed before testing, diagnosis, consultation or treatment begins. Evoking this environment are a series of distinct tableau's on breast cancer, dementia, anorexia, depression and domestic abuse. The focal point of each is a hybridized chair composed of found and sculptural elements; "lost" and/or "found" items specifically designed, ambiguously functioning clothing are traces if inhabitants past and future. Visitors may sit adjacent to each sculptural chair on an unaltered chair, where they listen to recorded interview excerpts and sound compositions of intimate and expanded perspectives, or multiple "voices" for each health issue. In this position, viewers are made participants in the waiting community.

Participating artists: Marguerite Perret , Bruce Scherting, Stephanie Lanter, Robin Lasser
