RENO — Artists Erika Frank and Momina Razaq will showcase artwork that connects medical practice, presented as “AIR: Artists in Residence.”

The show, presented by the Sierra Arts Gallery, at 17 S. Virginia St. in Reno, is a collaboration of Renown Health Foundation, the University of Nevada, School of Medicine and the Sierra Arts Gallery.

The exhibition will run from April 30 through May 18. A reception will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. May 17. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The gallery is closed at 3 p.m. May 18.

The Artists in Residence Program is dedicated to connecting fourth-year medical students with the power of the arts. This project was created with the aim of developing and nurturing the mutually beneficial skills of observation, analysis, empathy and self-reflection essential to artistic practice and human medical care.

The organizers’ hope is to deepen the understanding of the connections between medicine and the arts and humanities and to examine first-hand the claim that creativity and expression are integral components to healing.

The broader goal of the project is to advocate for the integration of the arts into the environment and delivery of care within healthcare facilities, according to a release sent out by Sierra Arts Gallery.

Sierra Arts is hosting an exhibition of artwork developed through this program in the past year.
