A beautiful feature of the 2021 Humanism & Healing Virtual Conference was the virtual Art Gallery, which showcased work by physicians, medical students, trainees, and others from across the healthcare community.
Each artist expressed the human connection through their chosen medium, including visual art, photography, dance, video, poetry, and narrative writing. They shared stories about navigating burnout, grief, and the pandemic. They illuminated why they chose to work in healthcare, how to counter racist narratives, and visions for a more inclusive future.
Here is a sampling of the 2021 Art Gallery, below, with one piece of art from each artist.
