Art as Therapy – A Powerful Collaboration Between Hope Healthcare and Lee Health
BIG ARTS Dunham Family Gallery

May 3 – June 7, 2024
The collaboration between Hope Healthcare and Lee Health shares the vision of healing through art. Expressive arts, in all forms, strive to provide hope and healing through the creative process. This exhibit shares the journey of each artist during bereavement, grief, illness, depression, physical and emotional challenges, rehabilitation, and recovery. We hope this personal and powerful exhibit elevates the community’s awareness of artists’ special abilities that emerge during difficult times.


Inaugural Artists Collective

BIG ARTS Mezzanine Gallery

April 26 – July 19, 2024

The Inaugural Artists Collective features BIG ARTS instructors exhibiting an eclectic body of work that includes a wide range of mediums including oil painting, watercolor pencils, acrylics, mixed media, fused glass, poetry and more. We are thrilled to feature the depth and breadth of the work our artist-instructors bring to BIG ARTS. Explore their creative expertise through this exhibition, which provides a glimpse into the artistic prowess they bring to our classes and workshops.
