Patient Art Exhibit
The Art of Translation
As part of the SID’s commitment to support the Coalition of Skin Diseases, the SID presented a series Patient Art Exhibits at the SID Annual Meeting. The first exhibit, titled “Emotions of the Disease,” was on display at the International Investigative Dermatology meeting in Miami, Florida in 2003. The successful inaugural exhibit served as a forum for patient advocate groups to express their personal feelings about skin disease to researchers in both academia and industry. Artwork was in a variety of media, including oil and acrylic paintings, paper collages, crayon drawings and poems.
The exhibit continues to be a moving illustration of the burden of skin disease and an integral part of the Annual Meeting. The SID is seeking Industry and/or private sponsorship of the exhibit so that it may continue to grow.
To find out how you can submit artwork for the exhibit, please contact Rebecca Minnillo, DM/MPA, Executive Director, Chief Program and Development Officer, at 216-579-9300 x 305, or via email.
