A collection of work by Creighton students from the School of Medicine (Omaha and Phoenix campuses), School of Dentistry, School of Nursing and the College of Arts and Sciences, will be displayed at Positive Exposure, a gallery in New York City, from Dec. 16, 2023, until Jan. 15, 2024.

The exhibition, A Portrait of Medical Humanities, is a continuation of the collaboration between Positive Exposure and Creighton University and showcases the bridge between art and medicine.

In February 2023, Positive Exposure exhibited the Many Faces of Neurofibromatosis with portraits of people living with NF were created by Rachel Mindrup, MFA, associate professor and Richard L. Deming, MD, Endowed Chair in Medical Humanities at Creighton University.

In May, Rick Guidotti, founder of Positive Exposure, traveled to Omaha to spend time taking portraits of Nebraskans living with various genetic disorders. Some of the photos from his exhibition held at Creighton’s Lied Art Gallery, "Change How You See, See How You Change," are part of this exhibition. 

The students at Creighton responded to Guidotti’s work and created some of their own interpretations from personal experiences. We hope our future physicians and healthcare workers will always remember the humanity behind the medicine.

The exhibition opens Saturday, Dec. 16, from 2-6 p.m. and goes until Sunday, Jan. 13, 2024.
